PARIS (Reuters) - Two unions at Total's refining branch have signed a pay rise deal with management, which is enough to make the deal valid, a top CFDT union official told Reuters on Monday.

The hard-line CGT union, which represents around a quarter of refining workers at Total's French refineries, had not however signed the deal by 1419 GMT (9:19 a.m. EST), the official added.

The agreement does not prevent striking CGT workers at the Gonfreville and La Mede plants to continue halting production.

"This is a good compromise in the current economic climate. The deal is applicable for 19,000 workers," Francois Pelegrina, a CFDT coordinator at Total.

The endorsement of two different union organizations was needed for a deal to go through. The moderate CGC had already said it would sign the deal with management.
