France - Unions welcomes success of campaign - July 30, 2009

The CGT public services federation is hopeful that draft legislation that would undermine employment rights in local and regional government will be defeated, also as a result of the union campaign.

The proposal was introduced with a view to relaxing the rules on recruitment of workers to local and regional government. The union warned that the draft legislation would effectively mean the end to the statutory regulations that cover employees in the sector.

Not only the Association of Mayors but also the Minister of the Interior have rejected the proposals and indicated their support for the maintenance of the statutory regulations.
