Force Ouvrière announced on Wednesday February 22 its decision to sign the agreement reached with French employers to simplify and broaden the sharing of company profits with employees, particularly in the smallest ones.
This decision will make it possible to validate, as expected, this national interprofessional agreement (ANI), the CFDT and the CFTC having already announced their desire to sign it. These three unions together represent more than 50% of employees.
FO has “chosen to sign” the national interprofessional agreement (ANI), “considering that it includes some advances”, in particular for the benefit of employees of companies with less than 50 employees, writes the 3rd private sector union in a press release .
And this even if this agreement does not meet “the ambitions” carried by FO “in terms, in particular, of salary”, which “must remain the main lever likely to maintain the purchasing power of employees”.
Incentive, participation and sharing bonuses
The text aims to generalize devices such as profit-sharing, participation and value-sharing bonuses to all companies with more than 11 employees. Trade unions and employers’ organizations theoretically had until Wednesday to sign it.
The CGT will decide on its position on Tuesday, next according to confederal secretary Boris Plazzi, and the CFE-CGC on Monday, according to Gérard Mardiné, general secretary of the union. Prime Minister Elisabeth Borne had promised on Monday to transcribe this ANI into law, in a “faithful and total” manner.
