Workers at an auto supply plant in central France, are holding a
factory hostage warning their bosses that if they move forward with a
mass sacking, they can kiss their
factory goodbye. In addition to already destroying equipment at the
factory and promising to scrap a machine each day until their demands
are met – the workers have unanimously agreed to booby-trap the plant.
Twitter images showed gas cans attached to a huge tank of liquid oxygen
with the words "we are going to blow everything up," in French,
scrawled on the site of the giant tank.
French workers are no strangers to radical tactics, as labor movement watchers have observed over the years. | Photo: AFP
