“ The confederation claims to adhere to and draws its inspiration from the principles of the social and Christian morality ”
Put the economic growth in the service of anyone, create a living environment favourable for the families, build a new status of the worker !
A vision of society in order to reassure the life paths, a label for the company agreements.
For Europe, create a real social and democratic inspiration for the whole citizens. CFTC is not satisfied with a world more and more interdependent and which shows less and less solidarity.
In France, the dialogue is a whole grouping together the collective relations of work inside the firm, the negotiation by sector. In Europe, it's organised by the tripartite social summit thanks to the European Confederation of trade unions (CES).
