Thousands of hospital workers join working time protest

Thousands of health workers joined the demonstration in Paris on 21 May called by seven unions - CGT, Sud, FO, CFDT, Unsa, CFTC, CGC - that organise workers at the AP-HP public hospitals in the Paris region. They were also joined by a managerial union SMPS. The protesters gathered outside the office of the AP-HP director who received a delegation of union representatives. The director claimed that the 35-hour week was not under threat but the AP-HP plan was to reorganise working time. Trade unionists from outside Paris joined the march as there are concerns that any changes introduced at such a major institution would lead to similar changes across the rest of the country.
