French employers say draft labour accord unacceptable
"At the moment we have to be pessimistic," Stephane Lardy, negotiator for the hardline Force Ouvriere (FO) union, told Reuters. "It's obvious that the last draft the employers offered us is very, very far from an agreement."
Labour Minister Michel Sapin said the government would present a draft law regardless of the talks' outcome. However, he expressed faith in a deal being reached by Jan. 11, when talks are due to conclude.
"They're negotiating, it's their responsibility, and I'm letting them negotiate," he told Canal+ television.
