France -Agreement within reach at Radio France? -April 15, 2015

Radio France wants to cut jobs through a voluntary departure plan; the reform focuses on structural issues and job cuts.

Trade unions and the government were nearing an agreement on the future of Radio France after a 28-day strike that exemplified the challenges of loosening up labour legislation. Broadcasts resumed, after a strike that started 19 March (see our March Newsletter), and staff met to discuss next steps. Four of five unions voted to return to work after progress on a compromise reform plan. The company wants to cut jobs through a voluntary departure plan; the reform focuses on structural issues and job cuts, but management is not talking about cutting benefits.
