France -Prosegur strike enters third week -October 04, 2015

Workers at security company Prosegur are on strike after management withdrew a risk bonus. The workers are paid a risk bonus due to the danger security guards face on the job. The security bonus was included in the annual leave pay, but was unilaterally withdrawn by management, who argued it had been a miscalculation. The guards went on strike demanding their proper pay and respect for the dangerous nature of their work. As the strike enters its third week, Prosegur is taking the workers to court, contesting the legality of the strike.
