Pension reform: unions vote for the continued blocking of the Port-La Nouvelle oil depot

Since Thursday, March 16, unions and protesters have been blocking the Port-La Nouvelle oil depot. A movement that was renewed for the first time this Friday, then a second time this Saturday, March 18, for a period of 24 hours.

The blocking of the Port-La Nouvelle oil depot does not seem to be weakening. While unions and demonstrators have been blocking the passage of trucks since Thursday, March 16, to express their hostility to the pension reform and, more recently, to the use of 49-3 by Prime Minister Elisabeth Borne, they decided, after a general meeting, to renew the movement for a period of 24 hours.

Sixty people are present this Saturday, March 18.

The Port-La Nouvelle site is not the only one in this situation since several energy storage and production sites find themselves in this situation in France. “Today we are sixty people, ensures Jésabelle Paoli for the CGT. We organize ourselves by doing rotations. Morale is good and we are satisfied with this action. We are at a strategic point.”

It should be noted that no truck has entered or left the port in recent days.
