For users Toulousethis Thursday, June 8 is one of the worst days of trouble since the latent social conflict broke out in Tisseo two months ago. No bus left the depots, no tram train took its service and the metro will stop at 7:15 p.m. The mobilization of strikers does not run out of steam, on the contrary, and the stalemate is real since relations are at a standstill between the inter-union (CGT, CFDT, South, FNCR) and the management of the board.
As a reminder, the conflict concerns the removal of a “safeguard clause” which made it possible to align the salaries of agents with inflation. A budgetary effort that Tisséo considers no longer able to make, as prices have soared.
Elected officials push for negotiation
In the absence of negotiations, users are reduced to watching traffic forecasts from one day to the next and adapting from day to day. Faced with this situation, the inter-union itself asked the prefect Pierre-André Durand to appoint a mediator. And this Thursday, parliamentarians, mayors and local left-wing elected officials appeal in a joint letter “to the responsibility of the management of Tisséo Voyageurs to open real negotiations with the inter-union with the objective of finding a rapid agreement”.
This Thursday morning, on the antenna of France Blue Occitania, the prefect indicated that he could not “intervene directly in a business dispute” but he asked for the mediation of the regional management of Labor to try “to renew the dialogue”, if the two parties accept it. For the intersyndicale, the answer is not in doubt. Without commenting, the management of Tisséo indicates that it is “awaiting” a response from the administration.
It is already announcing “strong disruptions” in the buses for Friday and a new premature closure of the metro at 7:15 p.m.
