France - Agreement concluded at PSA - August 31, 2016

The PSA Group signed a New Momentum for Growth agreement with five of the Group's six trade unions: CFE/CGC, CFTC, CFDT, FO and GSEA. According to PSA, improved dialogue and relationships with the unions built on trust will give the Group a competitive edge. The goal is ‘to transition from a collective bargaining culture to one that involves collectively building the Group's future by sharing and discussing strategy ahead of the curve to support the transformation process’. PSA is stepping up its efforts to retrain 1,000 workers for internal positions per year. A proactive youth employment scheme has been introduced with the goal of employing 2,000 young people a year under the new intergenerational contract to invest in staff for the future. PSA also plans to recruit 1,000 new members of staff on permanent contracts over the course of the agreement, 50% of whom will be hired as juniors as part of the youth employment initiative.
