Négocier sur les carrières syndicales pour lutter contre la discrimination‪. Une appropriation sélective et minimaliste du droit

Abstract : Negotiating on Trade Unionists’ Careers to Fight against Discrimination. A Restrictive and Minimalist Use of the Law ‪For the last 25 years, antidiscrimination law has expanded and it is now mandatory for companies with more than 300 employees to negotiate on trade unionists’ rights and protection. How did organizations comply with these new legal rules? Four in-depth case studies in two former public companies and in two private ones allow to describe and analyse the diversity of right practices and their relations with litigation. This article argues that these collective agreements that secure minimal career progression for trade unionists have been negotiated by and on behalf of union officials who are trying to be recognised as “social partners”, leaving aside the situation of lay union activists who are sometimes still suffering from daily victimization. Even if some agreements try to recognize some skills and abilities acquired through union experiences, they mainly include a new rhetoric on social partnership.‪
