Bus drivers to strike because uniform pants are too tight

MARSEILLE, France, April 19 (UPI) -- Bus drivers in a French city said they will go on strike because, among other grievances, the uniform pants they are required to wear are too tight.

The drivers, who work for the public transport authority in Marseille, said Friday the company's 1,600 employees will strike for 24-hours June 3 because they don't approve of "the quality, the color or the fit" of their new uniform pants, The Local.fr reported Friday.

"I won't be wearing them," a Marseille bus driver told the La Provence newspaper. "You'd think we work for [car repair company] Speedy! The shirts are alright, but these pants are far too tight."

CGT union leader Bernard Gargiolo said union leaders are upset they weren't consulted in choosing the uniforms.

"The employees don't want to wear a uniform that was chosen unilaterally by [RTM's] management, without taking into account the reflections of our clothing committee," Gargiolo said.
