French adhesive workers stick it to Brit boss

Sacre glue!

5 things you didn’t know about cloud backup

The British boss of a French adhesive factory is being held captive by workers over redundancy fears.

The sticky situation started Tuesday night, the Beeb reports.

The factory in the south-east is just the latest to fall foul of this increasingly common French reaction to the current economic squeeze.

Bosses at a Sony videotape plant, a 3M pharmaceutical factory and a Caterpillar plant have all suffered similar fates.

Four bosses are stuck inside after union negotiations over 68 job losses failed.

French president Nicolas Sarkozy has said such boss-napping is unacceptable and that workers could face prosecution.

French political protest has always been imaginative.

Current anti-Sarkozy protestors are wearing badges or T-shirts which refer to a 17th Century romantic novel that the president dismissed as rubbish. Which makes a change from setting fire to English sheep, at least. ®
