Monday, Smart exchange salary system – the New Republic

39 hours per week paid 37, for two years. The car manufacturer locks the speed of social dumping. As A preventive measure.

Two hours of work assigned to the employer by the freezing of the layoffs until 2020. This is the argument, and the bottom of the social pact signed in September 2015 by the employees of the automobile factory Smart Hambach in the Moselle. It is entered in the official application Saturday, against the constant of the majority unions (CGT and CFDT).

to be A divide between managers and workers

The contract, discussed it at length internally between in the public debate last fall. His supporters want to read a modernization of late but the promising social relations in the undertaking, a bit on the German model, everywhere, relied on. His detractors, and in particular the trade unions, decry a regression orchestrated by the employers under the threat of economic blackmail.

initially Approved by 56 % of the 800 employees of this unit lorraine subsidiary of the group Daimler-Benz, the device introduces a return to the thirty-nine hours of work weekly, for a wage calculated on thirty-seven hours, two years.

Backed by this observation, the CGT and the CFDT (representing 53 % of employees) wield their veto. To neutralize this opposition, in the direction approach each employee, offering him a rider to individual contract. Three months later, in December, 95 % of the 800 people mobilized on the site in the lorraine have signed. Trade unions deplore the fact as soon as this result, obtained ” under pressure from the executive “.

The specific provisions for employees and executives and who focus on a reduction of the days of RTT will not be initiated at the beginning of 2017. It is the CFDT, usually presented as a reformist who held the outposts of the fight. The CGT, initially in favour of the referendum, joined her trying to regain control.

The CFDT submits in particular that the effort is directly imposed on “Smart” would have consequences split on the 1,200 employees of subcontractors of the manufacturer the production is lean. And in these SMES, with no consultation of the staff is the order of the day.
