Casino waives claim for salary advances granted to employees

There is no question of making waves in a very tense social context. Passed under the fold of the consortium led by Daniel Kretinsky on Wednesday evening, the Casino group decided to give up demanding a salary advance from 900 employees granted more than 30 years ago. These advances dated from the 1990s during the takeover of several companies such as “La Ruche méridionale”. “This salary advance was granted to employees from different companies in order to compensate for the difference in the date of payment of salaries (end of month in the original companies and the 10th of the month at Casino),” specify the unions of the band. Since then, when employees left the group, this advance could be deducted from their balance in any account, explains the group's new management.

Today, as part of the current transfer of employees from the 288 super and hypermarkets purchased by Intermarché and Auchan, which will take place in the coming months, management planned to carry out these regularizations for the employees concerned. A legal operation consisting of applying “deductions from salary for advance”, according to the terms of the unions. But the scale of the number of these deductions - ranging from a few hundred euros to several thousand euros - has aroused the ire of employees. Result: the group finally decided to give up recovering these overpayments for “moral” reasons and not to add further fuel to the fire when an important social plan should be presented mid-term. april.

“As a reminder, three former managers recently left the Group, sharing 10 million euros, while the cancellation of this debt represented 300,000 euros for 900 employees,” say the group's unions in their press release. Suffice to say that the coming weeks promise to be particularly difficult for the brand new general manager, Philippe Palazzi, who, in addition to carrying out this potentially explosive social aspect, has the difficult task of recovering the asphyxiated group.
