The complaint Confédération générale du travail (CGT) v. France, 154/2017 was registered on 28 July 2017. It relates to article 4§2 (right to a fair remuneration) of the revised European Social Charter. The CGT alleges that French law 2016-1088 authorising the arrangement of working time for a term superior to a week and to extend it up to 3 years is contrary to the Charter because it deprives workers from their rights to fair remuneration and, in particular, to an increased rate of remuneration for overtime work.
The complaint Confédération générale du travail (CGT) v. France, 155/2017 was registered on 28 July 2017. It relates to article 6§4 (the right to bargain collectively – collective action). The CGT alleges that the so-called rule of indivisible thirtieth (which means that any absence from work during a day leads to a salary deduction of an amount equal to a thirtieth part of a monthly salary, each month being deemed to contain 30 days) provided by law 87-588 of 30 July 1987, which applies to strikes less than one day in the public service entails an unjustified violation of the right to strike of public officials.
