CTOS situation

"On Friday 30 November 2018, a blockage of CTOS premises took place. It is not part of the laws governing the right to strike, as no notice has been filed. This movement, initiated by the union UTC / UGTG, follows the sending, last November 23, to 16 agents in office, a letter from President Pascale ALIX-LABORDE, indicating that they will definitely have cease their duties with CTOS at the end of this month.

I was indeed forced, as a supervisor of CTOS, to terminate, at 30 November 2018, all the contracts of the interested parties. This difficult decision comes after a working meeting held last October 9 at the Prefecture, and in accordance with the commitments I had to make to the State and its representatives. I nevertheless wished to maintain the dialogue with the above-mentioned trade union organization. So I accepted a meeting on Thursday 29 November, with the UTC / UGTG. On this occasion, I explicitly recalled the difficult budget situation of the CTOS, the severe conclusions of the report of the Territorial Chamber of Accounts on the management of the COM and its satellites between 2007 and 2016, as well as my incapacity, to at this stage, to be able to directly recruit these agents.

I also reminded my approach to the relevant departments of Pôle emploi, so that individual and individual support is guaranteed to each agent, especially in terms of paid training. The goal, shared, is to promote a return to employment as soon as possible.
