La Poste: Unlimited strike at the Concordia sorting center


At the call of the SUD PTT GWA union, the letter carriers of the Saint-Martin Concordia mail center have been on an indefinite strike since Monday, March 13, related to their working conditions.    

During the negotiations on Friday, March 10, the proposals made by La Poste officials appear to be contempt for postal workers who have no choice but to strike. With this strike, the postal workers demand:

- Filling the 6 job positions vacant for several months (by depreciating temporary workers working on the site and by transfer)

- Professional recognition of postal workers in the territory

- The establishment of a training and promotion plan

- The improvement of their working and living conditions

- Respect for mail and parcel delivery 6 days a week

- Respect for social dialogue, tired of working conditions made unbearable due to the workload which have as consequences the health of letter carriers and the quality of the service provided to the population of the community of Saint-Martin

More than 20% of the workforce is to be filled, when we know the economic and social situation of the island with an unemployment rate of 33% and reaching up to 55% among young people. It is inconceivable to accept that La Poste does not fill these 6 working positions, knowing that since 2013, the La Poste group has benefited each year from the CICE (Competitiveness and Employment Tax Credit) notably in 2015 to the tune of 318 million d 'euros generated by a calculation made on the basis of the remuneration of low wages at the rate of 6% for France and 9% for the French overseas departments. This clearly shows the particularity recognized for establishments located in the French overseas departments and the need to maintain the level of employment, in particular by young people, which must be a priority and more particularly in Saint-Martin. More than ever, the postal workers of the Courrier Center of Saint-Martin Concordia are determined to defend their work positions and their working conditions.
