“It’s not a building site, it’s a pigsty. I’ve rarely seen that in my career. ” It is a very reassembled man who summoned the press on Monday morning for the first public act of this dispute. Supporting photos, José Sebastiao, union secretary at Unia, testifies to the rubble, waste and other cables littering the floor of the premises, a building under renovation at 14, rue du Mont-Blanc.
The list of shortcomings identified does not end there. Based on the Geneva regulations on construction sites, José Sebastiao enumerates the dust potentially harmful to the health of the workers, the absence of refectories, changing rooms and toilets in sufficient number. Moreover, it is difficult for workers to respect the distancing measures implemented to fight against the covid pandemic.
