Laurent Berger was re-elected at the head of the CFDT, Thursday 7th June 7, at the congress of the federation, which is held in Rennes since the beginning of the week.

Laurent Berger was re-elected on Thursday for a new term on the CFDT leadership team of 94.42%, up from 98.31% four years earlier, according to the results of the elections announced at the confederation congress in Rennes .

The only candidate in the running, the current secretary general, 49 years, will be formally renewed in his function late afternoon, after constitution of the executive commission, its close guard (ten members including Laurent Berger).

More women in the office

The new National Office has 40 members, including 19 women, in a desire to improve gender diversity in the governing bodies of the CFDT.

Initially, there were 37 people, including 14 women.

On Wednesday, his record of the last four years had been approved at 83.36%. This is three percentage points less than four years ago, but Laurent Berger “objectively did not think it would be at this level”, after all the criticism heard since Monday on his refusal to demonstrate against the ordinances reforming the labour Code.
