Reassuring to gather. It is the goal that set the Executive, yesterday, at the opening of the consideration of the proposal by Mallié Sunday Labour Act. While the recent controversy on the real scope of the text - according to the accepted definition of a common "tourist" ("Les Echos" of yesterday) - sowed disorder into the majority, of outset insisted the rapporteur of the text, Bernard Reynès (UMP). In an attempt to lift any ambiguity and challenge, the commission for Social Affairs even adopted in disaster yesterday morning and with the support of the Government, an amendment ensuring that only will be affected the common "tourist" within the meaning of the Code of labour (494 today). With fears that this figure would explode in the term, Xavier Darcos pointed out that this label cannot be obtained that "on the request of the Mayor and the agreement of the prefect, which constitutes a double guarantee".The Minister of labour said that the text "protects employees, supports companies and meets the expectations of the vast majority of the French".An argument that also highlighted Nicolas Sarkozy, who received yesterday afternoon, MEPs UMP to call them to the "unit(lireci-dessous).
Previously, Richard Mallié (UMP) had completed the table, in the House, brandishing the economic argument: "It is not possible to make the economy of thousands of jobs ...." We have a duty to pragmatism. "This analysis received yesterday, the consent of Laurence Parisot shy, for which the extension of Sunday work would be"a small contribution to the out of the crisis", that challenge the PS, the Modem and the unions.
The debate, which resumes today and will continue until Saturday evening (or Monday), should now drag evaded point by Xavier Darcos, but highly contested: unequal treatment that induces the text between employees working on Sunday. Contrary to what would apply in the future "perimeters of exceptional use of consumption" (chip)-type Plan of campaign, "in tourist municipalities, the text is neither voluntary nor counterparties for employees." Employers will be able to apply in all stores to all employees to work Sundays! ", castigated the Socialist Deputy Christian Eckert. For Martine Billard (Greens), "the text is built on a flagrant deception."
The opposition insists that she knows the presidential majority divided on this issue. Yesterday, the new Centre has tabled amendments to impose open (but not the conclusion) of negotiations on the counterparties to the employees in the tourist areas. Within the Government, views: such an approach would restore some social justice and better to accept reform by opinion... but in raising the cost of labour, it would limit its impact on employment. In any case, the new Centre warned that its support for the text would be conditioned on the adoption of these amendments. Christian Eckert (PS) was also careful to add to the disorder by pointing to a "case of unconstitutionality" in the text: If a large sign has an establishment in a smart and another in a tourist town, "you have employees located in the same business, but in different institutions, which will not have the same treatment. A new puzzle in prospect for the Government.
