Louis Vuitton facing strike from workers

According to the French newspaper Le Monde, hundreds of employees went on strike on Thursday, February 10, to protest low wages and changes to plans.

The strikes, organised by two French trade unions, the Confederation of French Democratic Labour and the General Confederation of Labour, took place at five of Louis Vuitton’s 18 factories in France. The union said Louis Vuitton was trying to move away from day shifts to morning and evening shifts, which would affect overtime pay.

Workers also protested against low wages, with some holding signs complaining about “low wages, great work,” according to FashionNetwork.

Since the fall, the union, which has been working with the LVMH-owned company, is now threatening to strike next week if the company does not comply with their demands.
