France - Unions disagree over EDF pay offer - November 30, 2009

The CGT, FO and CFTC unions have refused to sign a new pay agreement with EDF, although the agreement is being implemented following the decision by the CFDT and CFE-CGC unions to sign. The deal involves a 1.2% general increase from January 2010, based on the predicted level of inflation next year. There is also 0.7% for individual increases, 0.3% related to changes to the pension system and 0.6% linked to seniority increases in the pay scale. During energy sector campaigning and strike action earlier this year unions had been looking for a 5% increase to compensate for a loss in purchasing power in recent years.
