The Aéroports de Paris announced last December the departure of 1,150 positions in the face of the collapse of air traffic. The group had pledged not to go through layoffs, but forced its employees to cut wages of around 8% maximum. “We would never have thought that the airports of Paris would come to this. And given the current situation we fear for our jobs”, confides an anonymous employee. This reduction would not affect the base salary, but the supplements, such as mileage allowances or the profit-sharing bonus.
The management threatens to resort to a social plan if this measure is not accepted. The unions feel betrayed. “We are still in this form of blackmail by evoking the crisis to permanently lower salaries”, explains Daniel Bertone, CGT ADP general secretary. The goal is to achieve 100 million necessary savings, according to the group. These adjustments would prevent 350 layoffs, according to its CEO, Augustin De Romanet.
