Strikes at French oil refineries and storage sites to continue

CGT Trade Union representatives at TotalEnergies and ExxonMobil’s Esso France informed Reuters Monday that the strikes that hit French oil storage and refineries will continue on Monday.

These strikes have increased pressure on President Emmanuel Macron’s government. Already, discontent is brewing with the public about inflation and higher household costs.

“It will continue across the board,” stated a TotalEnergies CGT official. This was just a day after the French company offered to bring forward wage negotiations to try and end the labour dispute that has been going on for nearly two weeks.

According to the union, it was necessary to discuss internally TotalEnergies’ offer of starting wage talks earlier than originally planned.

A CGT official stated that the walkouts at two Esso France refineries would continue, ahead of discussions with management later in the day.

The union official stated that they have not received confirmation that the meeting would take place.

According to Esso France’s spokeswoman, the meeting will take place at the end of Monday morning. It is expected to include representatives of all four unions involved in the company.

According to the government, almost a third of France’s petrol stations experienced problems receiving deliveries of at least one fuel product on Sunday. This is up from 21% the previous day.
