JCDecaux and its subsidiary Cyclocity took note of the High Court of Nanterre’s decision not to rule on the question of transferring all employees of the Vélib’ service to the “Smovengo” group (SMOOVE SAS – MARFINA SL – INDIGO INFRA SA – MOBIVIA GROUPE). The Court has decided that only employees – and not their representatives – may request such a ruling.
Accordingly, Cyclocity immediately decided to hold an extraordinary works council on Thursday, 16 November, in order to review with staff representatives the available options to ensure that the employees are able to continue their activity. The judge did not contradict the position we have held since the beginning, namely that the transfer of employees is essential. We will therefore maintain our objective, which has always been to ensure the continued activity of our 267 employees, who are qualified, trained, and experienced, while the new operator plans 300 new hires before launching its activity on 1 January 2018.
JCDecaux and Cyclocity thank all the teams and their representatives, who have demonstrated outstanding commitment in their work to ensure the smooth operation of the Vélib’ service while working to retain their contracts.
