20 Minutes strike ends… for now

Yesterday evening (Friday 15 August, 19:00) the strike at the website of French free daily 20 Minutes ended. The management and the strikers agreed to try to find a way to resolve the conflict concerning the dismissal of website editor Johan Hufnagel (see previous post).

The management said it was satisfied that the strike was terminated. The position of Hufnagel, however, is somewhat unclear. It was stated that he would not be dismissed because of serious misconduct (”faute grave”) and that his important role was acknowledged. Whether he will have a future at 20 Minutes seems uncertain.

Before the news about the end of the strike was published on the website, French bloggers posted items to support the strikers (Le Post).
