Unions call for action on working conditions

France France
Public sector unions had talks earlier this month with the Ministry for the Public Service over working conditions with a particular emphasis on health and safety. The view of the CFDT put the focus on health and safety and argued that there is adequate protection in existing European and national legislation but that the challenge was to ensure these were applied across the public sector. The union also argued against including the issue of employing older workers within the general discussions on working conditions. UNSA also raised key health and safety issues calling for more action on prevention particularly regarding muscular-skeletal and psychological disorders. The union criticised the government for failing to organise a central health and safety committee meeting so far in 2008.
