France: Renault submits draft agreement to boost competitiveness for approval
Planet Labor, 22 February 2013, n°7319 -

With this draft agreement aiming to bring about a new growth dynamic, the French carmaker wants to maintain its scattered establishments and develop the activity of French plants while producing 100,000 more cars by 2016, in addition to 80,000 vehicles produced by partners. In the text, the management promises that it won’t shut any sites down in France, to maintain core businesses, to not implement a social plan or a voluntary leave program, in spite of the 7,500 job cuts by 2016 (i.e. 15% of the French staff). In return, actual working time will increase (up to 1,603 hours per annum), mobility will be reinforced (voluntary cross-site transfers) and wages will be frozen in 2013. The CGT union already announced it wouldn’t sign this agreement which “confirms further social decline by 2016.” The CFE-CGC, CFDT and FO unions are going to consult their teams before deciding whether or not to sign the text.
