[Industry story – Le podcast] Making ends meet, or how the French Joint strike ignited Brittany


Exhausted by six weeks of strike, the workers are angry. After a night of negotiations with the management of the French Joint, which ended in failure, some are reluctant to let the three directors go. On the morning of April 6, 1972, in front of the Saint-Brieuc factory, the CRS 13 company charged the strikers. A CFDT delegate was injured in the face by a butt blow. In tears, exhausted, the fitter Guy Burniaux grabs a policeman by the collar, who does the same. The spirits are heating up. The screams against the batons. ” Go ahead since you’re here for that, hit me! », Yells the worker. In these words, a collective stake, but also a very personal emotion.
