(en) France: Virgin, give Amandine back her job! [fr]

Date Fri, 22 Dec 2006 16:33:57 +0200

Amandine, a sales assistant with the Grands-Boulevards Virgin Store in Paris since 1998 and a member of the SUD trade union, was finally fired on 19th December last on a flimsy pretext (looking after a customer badly, calling the management into question and threatening the regional manager). This is however clearly an act of anti-union repression on the part of the Virgin management, and not the first of its kind.
Moreover, Virgin did not observe the correct procedure for the dismissal of staff members and Amandine is in fact the designated staff adviser for the Paris branch of the Solidaires union.
A mobilization (petitions, work stoppages) is being organized in order to force
the management to reconsider its decision. The dismissal of one syndicalist is
also a threat to all the workers, whom Virgin want to weaken.

Alternative Libertaire demands the immediate re-instatement of Amandine as well
as an end to Virgin's anti-union policy, and we will accordingly be joining the
solidarity actions. We invite everyone to take part in an assembly which will
be held on Saturday December 23 in front of the Virgin Store on 5 Boulevard
Montmartre (métro Grands-Boulevards) at 3 p.m.

An attack on one is an attack on all!
