Café Histoire: Le syndicalisme en France, une histoire

Monday 13 May 2013 17:30-19:00


Who doesn’t have this picture of France in mind ? The one of long processions of demonstrators, marching between the places de la Bastille and Nation in Paris, to express their opposition to the reform attempts of the State.

But what do we really know about trade unions and, more generally, trade unionism in France? Is there a French model? This talk will take you back to the origins of trade unionism in France and define the outlines of this concept.
