After voting on a strike communication and several negotiations, the company improved some economic items of the collective agreement negotiations, however, it is irreducible in the issue layoffs. For this reason, the Tarkett of Brazil went on strike from the first work shift of 12/14.

By the way, production at the French plant has been paralyzed by a strike since 11/29 because it refuses to reset annual inflation to workers.
The Brazilian factory argues for the closure of one sector and a restructuring to compete with other markets. In those moments they forget the €280 million profit made last year, or that they are one of the world leaders in vinyl floors, all at the expense of the sweat of the company's workers.
