France -Air France labour dispute spills over into annual social conference -November 13, 2015

Trade union CGT has announced it will boycott the tripartite annual social conference after Air France fired four employees believed to be responsible for the violence against the airline’s management, reported in last month’s newsletter. With the use of security cameras on the premises, Air France identified five employees who stormed its boardroom during a protest against a massive layoff, which would cost 2,900 jobs. While initially condemning the violence, trade unions CGT and FO have spoken out in supported of the dismissed workers. In addition, CGT is now refusing to attend the annual social conference that is scheduled to discuss the reform of social security.
