Paris Olympics 2024: Parisian garbage collectors lift their strike notice after only one day of mobilization

One day will have been enough. The Paris town hall announced on Wednesday "the lifting of the strike notice" of its garbage collectors, which threatened the entire period of the Olympic Games (July 26 - August 11), after the conclusion of an agreement on an "revaluation of the compensation system" .

“Yesterday, Tuesday, an agreement was reached to allow the lifting of the strike notice which ran over six days in May – 14, 15, 16, 22, 23 and 24 – then from July 1 to September 8,” said announced in a press release the town hall, led by the socialist Anne Hidalgo. “A revaluation of the compensation system has been ratified: 50 euros gross per month from July 2024 then 30 euros gross per month from January 2025,” specifies the town hall, which adds that a “cycle of discussion on more has also been opened.

The bonus framework for agents mobilized during the Olympic and Paralympic Games “remains from 600 euros to 1900 euros depending on the degree of intensification of the workload during the preparation, organization and/or participation to the progress of the event. The CGT FTDNEEA (waste treatment, water cleaning, sewerage, sanitation sector), at the initiative of the notice, demanded a salary increase of 400 euros per month for all staff and an exceptional bonus of 1900 euros for all agents who will work during the Olympics. The town hall welcomes “the spirit of responsibility and the shared attachment to the complete success of the Olympic and Paralympic Games”.

In March 2023, the Parisian garbage collectors' strike against pension reform lasted more than three weeks, leading to a pileup of waste in the streets of the capital, peaking at more than 10,000 tons. Images of piles of trash, sometimes reaching several meters in height, went around the world.
