New round of negotiations in Martinique. The discussions between the Group of 5 February, the movement against the living, and management must take 15 hours to Tuesday to seek a comprehensive agreement on wages and out of a crisis that has lasted for 34 days on the island . Monday evening, after eight hours of debates, talks have once again failed. Employers - and Medef CGPME - was briefly prevented from leaving by a score of protesters who had hoped a solution to the general strike and blocked the street used by cars.
Finally, unions are also calling on employers to accept "the principle of negotiation on the convertibility of the premium of 200 euros in salary when the state and communities - region and department - will cease their contributions, or in some two years. "We will work on both sides tomorrow morning, make projections to see if companies can tolerate" these requirements, has also responded Lecurieux-Durival Patrick, president of Medef of Martinique, who hopes "it will be the final negotiation. "
