France - Union attacks EDF for lack of responsibility - September 13, 2009

FNME-CGT, the CGT-affiliated union for mining and energy, has criticised the EDF energy company and its eRDF subsidiary for failing to support workers who were dismissed when a meter-reading was awarded to a new company. The new contractor also refused to abide by an employment tribunal decision that the workers should be reinstated. The union accused EDF of failing to comply with its own social responsibility code on sub-contractors and undermining its own claims to be supporting employment during the crisis.
