Unions representing employees of French pay TV operator Canal+ have threatened to take strike action on March 5 over what they see as an ongoing deterioration of working conditions and layoffs, according to local reports.
The CFDT, CFE-CGC and CGT unions are considering industrial action that could affect Canal+, free-to-air channels D8 and D17, call centres and technical services, according to the reports.
According to a union source cited by Le Monde, competition from Al Jazeera-owned beIN Sports is the principal culprit for a deterioration in Canal+’s economic situation, leading to cost-cutting and layoffs and an increased workload and stress for remaining employees.
