Chapter 4: Is France converging or not? The role of industrial relations
The French model of social dialogue has undergone several reforms that have further accelerated over recent years (since the 2008 crisis). The purpose of this chapter is to present some evidence on such ‘modernisation’ of social dialogue’, most recent trends and its links with labour market inequalities, wages and employment inequalities. It notably explores the effects of decentralisation and the inclusion of some flexicurity components at three traditional levels of social dialogue: national, sectoral and firm levels. It also describes the various sources of inequality emerging in the labour market before exploring the possible role of social dialogue – together with the involvement of the state – to generate more balanced and sustainable outcomes.
