“You only hear people who put manure on the prefectures”: anger spreads among construction professionals

Will farmers’ anger spread to other professions? If they are the only ones to benefit from a rebate on the TICPE tax applicable to non-road diesel, construction professionals denounce the existence of “a tripartite agreement”.

“You only hear people who put manure on the prefectures”: anger spreads among construction professionals

Will farmers’ anger spread to other professions? If they are the only ones to benefit from a rebate on the TICPE tax applicable to non-road diesel, construction professionals denounce the existence of “a tripartite agreement”. The latter also use this attractively priced diesel for “structural work and excavator work”. “Why does the government despise us?”, asked Jean-Christophe Repon, president of the Confederation of Crafts and Small Building Companies (CAPEB), on Europe 1 this Thursday morning.

“The fact that the Prime Minister announces the reduction of the TICPE simply for farmers, we have the impression that our sector has been cheated since this tripartite agreement has become obsolete”, noted a few days ago on Sud Radio Alain Grizaud , president of the National Federation of Public Works (FNTP). If the Minister of the Economy, Bruno Le Maire, promised “that he would provide compensation for VSEs in the building sector”, Jean-Christophe Repon is now waiting for action.

“You only hear from people who rubbish the prefectures,” he says. “We expect independence and autonomy.” For the moment, Jean-Christophe Repon does not give “no instructions for demonstrations” but notes “already around fifteen departments in which building craftsmen have joined farmers”. “We want activity and not more debts for France,” he insists.

Added to this is the desire to simplify the MaPrimeRénov’ system for owners. “We have been promised this simplification for years,” regrets the president of CAPEB who will meet the executive on February 15 to discuss the options envisaged. “Our craftsmen tell us that it is no longer possible”, so “we are trying to find a way out”, underlines Jean-Christophe Repon. “This time, we must really be heard,” he concludes.
