At the end of June 2023, La Poste informed the employees of its industrial mail platform (PIC) in Fleury-les-Aubrais (Loiret) of a plan to close the site at the beginning of 2024. Management explains that this project is being carried out against a backdrop of a significant fall in mail volumes (down 23% in four years in Orléans, for example), and a parallel rise in parcel volumes.

The SUD Solidaires union is denouncing the planned closure of the Loiret's only PIC. 'The sorting machines are simply going to be dismantled and all the current mail sorting activity for the Loiret, Cher and Nièvre departments sent to Wissous' in the Paris region (Essonne).

Individual interviews have been held with the employees affected by the closure of this activity, i.e. two-thirds of the platform's workforce of between 160 and 170 employees.
