Orders are not neutral. They will increase job inequalities because " the most affected employees are those on fixed-term contracts or working in small businesses. Two categories where women are overrepresented, "alert more than 60 personalities and feminist organizations. ---- Emmanuel Macron has promised. Women will be the great national cause of the quinquennium. He has been elected for just 150 days and has already managed to get himself lied three times. A first time with the appointment of the government and the lack of dedicated ministry. A second time this summer, with the 27% decrease in the budget of the Secretary of State for Equality. A third time with Labor Law No. 2. ---- As often, apparently "neutral" texts actually have clear consequences on inequalities.

Reform of pensions, health insurance or the labor code: all these reforms, which targeted all employees, had a different impact on women and men. Surprising ? Not that much. When you propose a reform in a country like France, where job inequalities are strong (26% wage gap), reform is rarely neutral or ineffective. Either it aggravates the situation and increases inequality, or it tackles inequalities and makes them fall back.

Orders fall into the first category. The employees most affected by the reform are those on fixed-term contracts or working in small enterprises. Two categories where women are overrepresented. Several measures will therefore have a particular impact on women and increase professional inequalities.

The reversal of the hierarchy of standards refers to the definition of many rights, including family rights.

Sick child leaves taken overwhelmingly by women, the extension of maternity leave and the maintenance of 100% remuneration, the reduction of working time for pregnant women ... all these rights, hitherto provided for in the Conventions group, will be able to be challenged tomorrow by a company agreement. This is also the case for seniority, retirement or dismissal bonuses.

The government weakens the tools of professional equality in companies.

The law now provides for an annual bargaining " equality in the quality of life at work " and obliges the company to provide data to the employees on the professional inequalities between women and men. These data are those of the former Comparative Situation Report, resulting from the first 1983 Equal Employment Act (Roudy Act). These data are now integrated into the economic and social database. Firms that do not open such negotiations and do not provide such data may be penalized. Orders will make it possible, through a company agreement, to change the content of the negotiation, to choose the equality data to be transmitted (or not) and to switch from an annual negotiation to a quadrennial negotiation ... negotiate at all.

It will now be possible to impose mobility clauses by company agreement without the law setting a geographical limit or obligation to take into account the family situation of employees. Idem for changes in working hours and working hours or wage cuts. Particularly penalized by these measures are women, who are more often part-time, more often precarious, heading single-parent families and taking over a large part of their parenting duties. The first argument put forward by women who withdraw from the labor market is the impossibility of fulfilling their family responsibilities due to the atypical schedules imposed on them. Orders do not help them.

The disappearance of the CHSCT (the health, safety and working conditions committee) provided for in the ordinances will have an impact on the prevention of sexual violence at work. 20% of women report that they have already experienced sexual harassment in the workplace. 5 years after the improvement of the law on sexual harassment, the government decides to eliminate the body dedicated to health and safety at work.

Finally, the right to gender equality expertise, gained in 2015, helped elected and unions to identify and understand the sources of inequality. Previously paid by the employer, this right of appraisal will now have to be co-financed by the works council. Because of its limited budget, it will have to make choices. And often, in this case, equality becomes secondary.

Orders are not neutral. They will increase job inequalities.

Emmanuel Macron, Marlene Schiappa, your great national cause begins badly. Change course, do not sell off the rights of women to MEDEF requirements, remove these orders.

Feminists will demand it on the street with all !
