France Bleu, a network of local and regional radio stations in France, reported that the Rouen Administrative Court had stopped the execution of the Seine-Maritime Governor’s decision to force strike workers at the Gonfreville-l’Orcher refinery.
The court ruled that this decision of the governor’s office was “a serious and clearly illegal violation of the right to strike”.

In addition, the French state was sentenced by the court to pay a fine of 2,000 euros.
The General Workers’ Union (CGT), within the refinery, announced that they stopped the fuel shipments again after the court decision.
Workers at TotalEnergies’ Gonfreville-l’Orcher refinery went on strike in response to the government’s pension reform.
The Seine-Maritime Governor’s Office also decided to forcibly start work for the striking workers at the refinery.
Pension reform crisis
The demonstrations that broke out on March 16, following the government’s decision to pass the draft law, which includes raising the retirement age by 2 years from 62 to 64, continue in France without voting.
Violence is taking place in many parts of the country between the police and the demonstrators, who intervened violently in the demonstrations.
More than 1,000 people have been detained in protests across the country since March 16.
