France - Unions organise joint action on 23rd - November 25, 2010

Following the repeated mobilisations in September, October and on 8 November against the government’s pensions legislation, five union organisations organised a national day of action on 23 November. They challenged the government’s statement that the question of pensions was now settled and also raised further issues such as employment, working conditions and gender inequality about which they want to make their voices heard both to the government and employers. The unions also announced their support for a further day of action on 15 December, joining other unions around Europe in protest against austerity measures (See also this Collective Bargaining Newsletter Year 3 September and October 2010).
