Le réformisme assumé de la CFDT
The Reformism of the CFDT
Survey of Members
For the first time, an original investigation of the CFDT (French Democratic Confederation of Labour) combines qualitative and quantitative surveys carried out with a representative sample of 1,503 trade union members whose membership covers the period from the 1960s to the 2000s. Taken together, the two investigations reveal the aspects of continuity and discontinuity characteristic of this trade union, its history and its universe.
Beyond the factual results, the investigation reveals the CFDT's reformism, the fruit of its central administration’s sometimes turbulent evolution and its members’ chosen mode of action in French society today.
The number of strikes is declining, they are no more central in the protest repertoire of the working classes, but they are giving way to a more diffuse form of conflictuality.
