Audiovisual production: call for a general strike on Monday for wages

After several days of mobilization, the CGT union of audiovisual production technicians is calling for a general strike on Monday in the sector, in the face of a proposed wage increase deemed “indecent”. The movement aimed at obtaining “20% for all” began at the beginning of November for one or two days per week, and disrupted the filming of series like “HPI”, broadcast on TF1, or the editing of TV shows. .

Producer organizations reopened the annual salary negotiation on Thursday, and put on the table for January 1 an increase of 3 and 5% of minimum wages, depending on the level of remuneration. This brings the increase to 5.6% and 8.7%, taking into account revaluations made last January and July, according to a press release from these organizations (USPA, SPI, Spect, Satev).

They also call for the establishment of specific grids by branch of activity, each having a different economic model: fiction, documentary, streaming and live performance capture. But most employee unions refuse this distinction. In total, 10,000 to 15,000 technicians are affected. “The mobilization must be toughened next week,” argues the Spiac-CGT. The SNTPCT, another union in the sector, has not yet decided on its mode of action.

Questioned on Friday about this strike by franceinfo, Pierre-Antoine Capton, CEO of the powerful production company Mediawan, explained that “we are in a sector which is in full evolution and revolution, with new entrants”. “There was a strike in the United States, with significant impacts, today we must all be extremely attentive,” he recalled, saying he was “convinced that social dialogue is the only solution, and that From next week we will be able to find solutions together.”
