The striking employees of the Fonderie de Bretagne in particular invited many elected officials to come with their scarf, as during their intervention at the start of the Lorient municipal council, Thursday evening. Many parties and trade unions have indicated that they are joining the movement this Saturday. Shortly before the start of the rally, between 200 and 300 people were already there. At the time of starting a march, they were more than 1,000.
For more than a month, employees have been carrying out numerous punching actions, such as blocking the level crossing at Lorient, along the coastal road or even steps on the N165. They also blocked the bus of FC Metz players before the match between them and FC Lorient at the Moustoir stadium on Sunday May 16. Their major objective is to save their jobs and their plant in Caudan, from which the majority shareholder Renault wishes to withdraw and find a new buyer.
