Orange SA and the five representative trade unions CFDT-F3C, CFE-CGC Orange, CGT-FAPT, FO-COM and SUD-PTT unanimously signed a wage agreement for 2019 on 24 April for employees in France.
This agreement determines a comprehensive budget for the different measures, accounting for 3.0 % of wages.
It includes individual pay rises with a guaranteed amount for everybody and is supplemented by an additional rise for lowest wage levels.
A reinforced measure is also provided to improve recognition of employees with regard to their professional development and the evolution of their activities.
Lastly, there are dedicated measures aimed at continuing actions supporting workplace gender equality, with an increased budget, as well as for young people who have joined the company in recent years.
On signing this wage agreement, Valerie Le Boulanger, Executive Director in charge of Human Resources at Orange, remarked: “I am very happy to have reached this wage agreement following intensive discussions with our social partners. We have been able to find the right balance between providing recognition for each Orange SA employee’s contribution to the company and appreciating the value in each person’s skills and professional development.”
