Eurof WFTU wholeheartedly supports Total energie and Exxon Mobil workers organised with the FNIC CGT on strike for strong wage increases. France is facing fuel shortages due to the compact all-out strike by Total Energie and Exxon mobil plant workers that has been going on for over a week now. The main demand of the striking workers is a generalised retroactive increase in wages of 10% from January and taxation of the oil companies’ extra profits. Total made 11 billion extra profits in the first six months and 18 billion in the second half of 2022 alone. The long queues at petrol stations, the French government’s appeal to the companies to accept the wage increase demand at the centre of the long strike say a lot about the strength of a united and determined strike. The European office of the World Trade Union Federation strongly supports the struggle and calls on all affiliated organisations to mobilise and support the workers organised in the FNIC CGT, a trade union organisation affiliated to the WFTU.
