The 311 workers are unhappy with the compensation being offered to them since the video tape factory is being close on April 17. Foucher came to visit the staff one last time before it closed. After he entered the gates, the workers went on strike and barricaded the entry with tree trunks.


Sony France president Serge Foucher had a bailiff testify that he was not being allowed to leave the plant and the bailiff "told us he would approach the forces of order," CGT union spokesman Patrick Hachaguer said.


"He won't listen to us, we didn't find any other solution," the left-wing union delegate added.
