It was the last chance encounter. On Monday, October 3, 2022, the Beauvais Airport Management and Operations Board (SAGEB) and the unions met to find a solution to avoid strike planned for Tuesday 4th and Thursday 6th October.

After discussions between the two sides, “the strike is maintained,” assured Sullivan Houssin, CFDT delegate at Paris-Beauvais airport. The UNSA and CFDT strike notice, filed on September 26, sets out the mobilization of strikers this Tuesday, October 4, will mobilize 80 employees of 233 workers at Beauvais-Tillé airport, according to the union.

Strike without blockades

“We didn’t plan to block and disrupt operations, but we will connect,” CFDT explains. From parking staff, through buses, through stopovers or transport, this mobilization applies to all services: ” we will not disturb passengersour goal is just not to work,” the union assures, although longer waiting times could be identified.

“Working conditions have worsened, while 2022 is a record year for the airport (editor’s note: thanks to the strong presence of Ryanair) and 2023 is an era that promises to be bright with the arrival of EasyJet,” testifies Sullivan Houssin, a union representative who claims share of the cake: “we want to connect the employees with the success of the airport and share the obtained result together”.

The management made us a non-negotiable offer that included a bonus of 2100 euros per person. But without a pay raise, or negotiating profit and profit sharing agreements.

Renewed strike

The union is already set for a showdown with airport management as the strike will take place every Tuesday and Thursday in October 2022: “These are the busy days when the flight schedule is busiest,” says Sullivan Houssin.

There is no word yet on the recovery around November, “we’ll see where the social dialogue is, so far we’ve only planned eight days”.
