1 Who is calling the strike and why?

“Yes, the money exists… for the rich”. The leaflet distributed by the CGT of Finistère to call for a strike, this Thursday, January 27, protests: “For years, employers and the government have made us believe that there was no money, but for months, the government gives billions to companies without social conditions or control. »

In addition to the CGT, other unions are taking part in this day of mobilization: Force Ouvrière, the Snes-FSU (first trade union federation in France for education), Solidaires, as well as the high school organizations Fidl and MNL. “It is urgent and essential to act all together, through strikes and demonstrations, for the immediate increase of all private and public salaries, allowances for young people in training and job seekers, as well as improving pensions for retirees,” they wrote in a joint statement.

The last interprofessional strike dates back to October 5th. In Brittany, nearly 9,000 demonstrators took to the streets.

  • 2 Where do the events take place?
  • In Finistère, five events are organized this Thursday. The appointments are all fixed at 11 a.m.: in Brest, Place de la Liberté; in Quimper, place of the Resistance; in Morlaix, Place des Otages; in Carhaix, in front of the trade union centre; and in Quimperlé, place des Écoles.

    In Morbihan, four events are planned. In Vannes, the meeting is set for 10:30 a.m. on the Simone-Veil esplanade, at the port. In Lorient, meeting at 10.30 a.m. at L’Orientis. In Pontivy, the demonstrators will meet at 10:30 a.m. on the Plain. And in Belle-Ile, the meeting is fixed at 11 a.m. at the port of Palais.

    In the Côtes-d’Armor, a rally is scheduled for 10:30 a.m. at the Parc des promenades in Saint-Brieuc. In Lannion, the meeting is fixed at 11:30 am on the place of Caerphilly. In Guingamp, the rally will take place at 5:30 p.m., on the forecourt of the station.

    Finally, in Ille-et-Vilaine, the gatherings will take place: in Rennes, at 11 a.m. on the Charles-de-Gaulle esplanade; in Saint-Malo, at 11 a.m. in front of the media library; in Fougères, at 5 p.m. on Place Aristide-Briand; and in Redon, at 5 p.m. in front of the sub-prefecture.

    Some have had their classes closed for a week due to covid cases and they have qualms about closing one more day

  • 3 What participation in education?
  • This is one of the big questions, after the very well-attended demonstration of January 13 against the management of the health crisis, during which many schools had been closed. This time, it should be less important, but higher than that of January 20.

    Asked about this this Wednesday morning on BFMTV, the Minister of Education Jean-Michel Blanquer did not get wet: “You should never make a forecast in this area, we will see. »

    On the side of the SNUipp, the majority union in the first degree, we hope for 30% of strikers in public primary schools, even if we are aware of certain obstacles to taking action: “Some have had their classes closed for a week because of cases of covid and they have scruples about closing one more day, explains Sabrina Manuel, kindergarten teacher in Ploudalmézeau and departmental secretary SNUipp of Finistère. For others, two days of strike in the same month, it represents too big a loss of salary. But there will still be people and we always feel dissatisfaction! In our department, the additional lists have not all been called and we still have not had masks, whether FFP2 or even surgical. »

  • 4 What disruptions to expect?
  • Another corollary of the strike: some disruptions are to be expected in transport. No change however for the TGV. Few cancellations also on the side of the Breton TER: only a few journeys between Dinan and Rennes and between Rennes and Laval are deleted.

    Some disruptions are announced on the BreizhGo coach lines. For example, in Côtes-d’Armor, certain timetables are canceled on lines 2, 6, 8, 11, 13, 14, 20, 25, 27 and 31. Some school transport will also be impacted (cancelled or delayed). And in Rennes, it will be the routes of the lines of the Star network which will be modified from 11:30 a.m. to 2 p.m. so as not to be caught in the procession of demonstrators.
