MEDEF, l’effet Parisot

, , 1 Comment

Réalisé par Cyril Mennegun

Le compte à rebours a commencé. En mai 2007 la France choisira un nouveau Président de la République. Où se situe celle-ci aujourd’hui dans l’Europe de l’économie de marché et surtout quelle place occupe-t-elle dans le monde ? Parmi les lieux de pouvoir où l’avenir de notre pays se discute, s’organise et se décide, se trouve le MEDEF. Sans idées préconçues, sans volonté partisane et surtout sans compromis, le film propose un double regard : l’un en immersion au sein du MEDEF, pour la première fois vu et vécu de l’intérieur, et l’autre regard posé sur sa « patronne » Laurence Parisot, femme désormais aussi puissante que méconnue.

    Art, It seems to me that both views have a degree of truth in them but if the coxntet is taken into account, yours is closer to reality. While Girard’s view reflects social democratic doctrine and practice as it has evolved in advanced social democratic regimes such as Scandinavia, it is worth pointing out that this happened in countries where the level of unionisation is very high (70 per cent in Sweden, even higher in Norway). In France, by contrast, where the level of unionisation is very low (especially in the private sector) the implementation of Hollande’s proposal risks de facto enhancing the bargaining power of le patronat. For the French governments of the Left, given the low level of unionisation, il n’y a que la loi as a former French PM put it to me. This reality is often concealed by the fact that, in the past, collective agreements covered very large numbers of workers. It is worth noting that many of the reforms that they introduced, have followed failed (or stillborn) attempts to launch negotiations between unions and employers. The 35-hour working week is a very good example. That Parisot supports Hollande’s proposals speaks volumes.It also seems to me that this might be an attempt on Hollande’s part to create a centrist image and thus distance himself from Martine Aubry.
