By 2028, if he achieves certain objectives, this amount could reach 66 million euros. A compensation deemed scandalous by the CGT, the third union at PSA. “He’s the same guy who tells Stellantis workers he can’t raise their salaries because there’s no money.“, lambasted Philippe Martinez, secretary general of the CGT invited Wednesday, April 13 in Télématin.
In the middle of the presidential campaign, the subject took a political turn. On the government side, the Minister of the Economy Bruno Le Maire considers this salary excessive. “It must lead us to reflect on this question of the salaries of managers in relation to the employees of the company, but to do so at European level because otherwise you will lose all the good bosses who obtain results“, he estimated. For Marine Le Pen, candidate of the National Rally, this remuneration is “shocking“, but “less than for others“. She points out that for once, “business results are good“.
