C’est une petite bombe qu’a lâchée le député-maire UDI de Drancy, Jean-Christophe Lagarde, ce mardi 3 janvier sur France Info. Interrogé sur les dérives communautaristes liées à l’islam – comme le fait que les femmes ne soient pas tellement les bienvenues dans les cafés de certaines banlieues – l’élu de Seine-Saint-Denis affirme d’abord que « la religion n’a rien à faire au travail ». Avant de dévoiler ce qui a constitué, selon lui, un autre exemple de dérive :
« Il y a eu des difficultés y compris dans mon département, par exemple à Aulnay-sous-Bois. On ne l’a jamais dit, mais une partie de la fermeture de PSA était liée aussi à l’omniprésence religieuse et au fait qu’il y avait des exigences religieuses au travail, d’arrêt de travail, de baisse de productivité, et dans le choix de PSA de fermer Aulnay, il y a eu aussi cet aspect-là. »

Jean-Christophe Lagarde links the closure of PSA in Aulnay to “religious omnipresence”
Jean-Christophe Lagarde explains in “part” the closing of the PSA plant in Aulnay-sous-Bois by “religious demands at work”. – Capture France Info
The Deputy Mayor of Drancy and President of the IDU said on Tuesday that the closure of the car factory in 2013 was linked in part to “religious demands at work.” Contacted by “Marianne”, the PSA group wants to make “no comment” on this point, while recalling the economic reasons for this closure.
“There were difficulties even in my department, for example in Aulnay-sous-Bois. It was never said, but part of PSA’s closure was also linked to religious ubiquity and the fact that there were religious demands at work, stoppage of work, decreased productivity, and In the choice of PSA to close Aulnay, there was also this aspect. “
“On some RATP lines, it also exists. So there is need to surrender from the Republic, “adds the one who is also the President of the IDU, referring to the cases of radicalization reported in the Ile-de-France transport company, which would employ many people.
PSA explains the closure by “the situation of the group” at the time
PSA Peugeot Citroën closed its plant in Aulnay-sous-Bois in December 2013, which still employs 3,000 employees in the summer of 2012, justifying it by the severe turbulence experienced by the automobile group, which nearly went bankrupt, time. Contacted, the group sweeps the claims of Jean-Christophe Lagarde. “I have no comment to make on this point. This statement is only the responsibility of the person who formulated it, reacts to Marianne Pierre-Olivier Salmon, spokesman of PSA. The closure of the Aulnay-sous-Bois plant is to be put into perspective with the situation of the group between 2010 and 2013. It was necessary to take measures to ensure its durability. “
The PSA plant in Aulnay was known for employing a large number of practicing Muslim workers. Like other production sites in the group, it even housed a prayer room since the 1980s, as Liberation reported seven years ago, and lunch breaks were arranged during Ramadan. In 2011, the distribution of a Muslim calendar by Force Ouvrière provoked a polemic, according to Le Parisien. But the closure of the factory had never been publicly linked to religious demands.
