French Strike - Inrap takes no more - BAJR Host - 13th December 2009

Yes it just goes to show that you can push people too far.

This article is from a French Blog, which I have translated using Google translate (so apologies for some weird grammar and words)

Quote: Yesterday, the strike was passed at a meeting of the headquarters staff of the 'National Institute of Preventive Archaeological Research.
At this meeting I attended in part, the staff wondered how to respond to recent government announcements about the relocation of the headquarters in Reims. He also discussed the current action in many cultural institutions, especially the strike in the museums.
This new action against the relocation of the headquarters in Reims occurs after the project had been reaffirmed recently by Francois Fillon during a visit to the capital of Champagne. How does this strike the CEO Inrap? Nothing, because yesterday, he no longer CEO. Nicole Pot, as expected for three years, left this function last Friday. Frederic Mitterrand and Valerie P?cresse, who co-supervised Inrap, they have a power pen?
Quote: Hier, la gr?ve a ?t? vot?e lors d'une r?union du personnel du si?ge de l'Institut national de recherches arch?ologiques pr?ventives.
Lors de cette r?union, ? laquelle j'ai assist? en partie, le personnel s'est demand? comment r?agir aux derni?res annonces gouvernementales sur la d?localisation du si?ge ? Reims. Il a ?galement discut? de l'action en cours dans de nombreuses institutions culturelles, en particulier la gr?ve dans les Mus?es.
Cette nouvelle action contre la d?localisation de ce si?ge ? Reims survient apr?s que ce projet eut ?t? r?affirm? il y a peu par Fran?ois Fillon lors d’une visite dans la capitale champenoise. Que pense de cette gr?ve le directeur g?n?ral de l’Inrap?? Rien, car, depuis hier, Il n’y a plus de directeur g?n?ral. Nicole Pot, comme pr?vu depuis trois ans, a quitt? cette fonction vendredi dernier. Fr?d?ric Mitterrand et Val?rie P?cresse, qui ont en co-tutelle l’Inrap, ont-ils une panne de stylo??
