The union CGT denounces the management which is using the pretext of the COVID-19 crisis to cut 105 positions ; to make the jobs of receptionist and cashier host disappear; to close six shops and reorganise the support services. The six shops concerned are those of Bondy (Seine-Saint-Denis), Lampertheim (Bas-Rhin), Mérignac (Gironde), Portet-sur-Garonne (Haute-Garonne), Brest (Finistère) and Le Havre (Seine-Maritime).  The interunion called on all the employees of the company to go on unlimited strike from 18 September onwards.
