France - Unions and EDF agree to positive 2010 wage terms - February 22, 2010

On 18 February, four French unions approved average wage increases for 60,000 EDF (Electricité de France) workers of 4.4% for 2010. CFDT, CGT, CFTC, and CFE-CGCagreed on a progressive wage accord that has a base salary increase, plus increases based on seniority, training, incentives, and promotions. An industry-wide increase of 1.2% that was negotiated in November 2009 and took effect on 1 January 2010 is also factored into the 4.4% average increase. The agreement includes individual incentives of up to 1.8%, and prioritises training and career advancement opportunities. The CFDT termed the agreement satisfactory, while the CGT ! said it makes up some of the lost purchasing power of the recent past.
