As expected the Tribunal de Grande Instance de Caen returned to the date of June 14, 2012 the hearing on 24 May on the order of the prefect of the shops open on Sunday in the food trade.

Because employees in commerce are also entitled to a social life, the CGT trade and services has decided to prosecute employers who do not respect the order of the prefect of the March 23, 1998.

At that time a compromise had been reached on opening retail stores food. The operator, when it decided to open on Sunday morning, was obliged to close his establishment during a consecutive period of 24 hours.

Over time, several names in retail, in defiance of that order, have opened their outlets 7 days on 7.

June 14, 2012, 8:30 to 9:00, the CGT organized a rally outside the High Court of Caen, up Fontette.
Hearing starts at 9:00.

Many participate in this gathering.
