Employees from the Chaffoteaux et Maury factory will use the money they get from stripping to fly to Italy, where they plan to stage a protest at their parent company, the Ariston Thermo Group (ATG).
Brigitte Coadic, representative of union said, "Our aim is to show there are workers here who will do anything to save their jobs, even take their clothes off."
She said, "We don"t want to destroy anything. We want to show what we can do, tell the management that, if they keep us, we can turn all this media attention into something positive."
Coadic said, "the workers had been prompted to action when ATG said at the start of the summer that it would close production operations in northern France, cutting 204 jobs out of a total of 250 at the site."
