French workers strike to defend their boss

Employees of SCA Packaging Fegersheim in the Alsace region of France went on strike on Monday to protest against the dismissal of the director of their factory. ‘We want to stand up for our director Patrick Beranger, who has fought with us every day for the past 10 years,” said Sylvie Schuler, CGT. He ‘saved us from bankruptcy in 2002’ and has since ‘assured the survival of the company’ said the union official. The dismissal came after a profit-sharing agreement was signed between the unions and the factory management. When Mr Beranger presented senior managers with the agreement they complained that he had failed to consult them and although not questioning the deal, they dismissed him with immediate effect, last week.
