Strike Monday in opposition to the tip of the nationwide information of France 3
“Reinforcement of the regional provide” as assured by the administration or “low price regionalization” as feared by the unions? The staff of the Parisian headquarters of France Télévisions are known as to strike on Monday in opposition to the deliberate abolition of the nationwide tv information of France 3.
It’s a “main cultural change”, acknowledged the director of data of FTV, Laurent Guimier, by formalizing the venture at first of July: the general public group intends to take away from September 2023 the nationwide newspapers of France 3, on 12/13 and 19/20.
They are going to be changed by 24 regional editions, “ICI midi” and “ICI soir”, which can embody matters on nationwide and worldwide information. The acknowledged purpose of administration is to undertake a “native prism” for the sake of “proximity to viewers”.
“Let’s take the instance of the power disaster: we’re not going to deal with it in the identical manner in Saint-Avold or Rennes, as a result of it doesn’t have the identical affect”, had argued the president of France Télé, Delphine Ernotte, on July 6 throughout the group’s back-to-school presentation convention.
However this venture, dubbed Tempo internally, doesn’t persuade the unions. 5 of the six consultant organizations (SNJ, CGT, Unsa, CGT, Cfdt) known as Parisian staff to strike on Monday.
The announcement of the abolition of those “historic editions” prompted a “beautiful impact”, assures AFP Serge Cimino, of the SNJ (Nationwide Union of Journalists), who sees within the venture a “low price regionalization”.
Concern over personnel administration
At present, the France 3 night information provide (together with the regional JT and the nationwide 19/20) lasts greater than an hour and twenty minutes (from 6:30 p.m. to 7:55 p.m.), whereas the time slot deliberate for ICI night is “from 50 minutes, from 7:00 p.m. to 7:50 p.m. ”, based on him.
One other grievance: the truth that “the nationwide and worldwide content material of the information can be produced by franceinfo (the group’s data channel, editor’s observe) and the nationwide editorial companies” based mostly in Paris, as described within the administration venture. “As a definition of native and proximity, it makes me snigger a bit,” feedback Cimino.
And the unions are nervous in regards to the implications when it comes to personnel administration, since this might lead some staff at present working in Paris to maneuver to the provinces.
The venture thus gives for a “assist mechanism and/or mobility proposal for all the staff involved”. “Greater than 1,000 persons are straight affected by this reform, which can have an effect on the very nature of their exercise”, assures Cimino.
“Because the water goes, departures, mobility, the concept is to scale back” the workforce, fears Pierre Mouchel, of the CGT. In July, Ernotte had affirmed that Tempo didn’t obey “a logic of financial savings”.
The announcement of the venture was “untimely as a result of we have been within the context of the talk on financing (the abolition of the payment, editor’s observe) and the administration wished to indicate that we have been proactive on the developments”, estimates Mr. Mouchel, stating lack of correct data.
Based on administration’s timetable, a interval of “co-construction of the venture” with the staff begins in September and ends in July 2023. “We’re requested to co-construct a venture whereas we already know the tip, ”laments Serge Cimino.
