France - Union organises protest at Carrefour - December 17, 2010

The CGT commercial services union has called for a one-day action in all stores of the country’s largest retailer, Carrefour, on Saturday 18 December, in the run-up to Christmas. The protest is against deteriorating working conditions and management plans to restructure the distribution organisation and extend night shifts. Workers are encouraged to stop work, walk out, spread leaflets or sign a petition. Carrefour would not comment on the likely impact of the action.
