Chérèque Will Quit Leadership of CFDT

François Chérèque, who has led the CFDT since 2002, will retire in November and almost certainly be replaced by Laurent Berger, age 43. Chérèque's leadership will be remembered for his support of Fillon's retirement reform in 2002, a position he took without consultation with his members, leading to an eruption of internal and external opposition. But he survived and has reigned more or less tranquilly since then, to the point where his handpicked successor will undoubtedly be approved to replace him.

Why can't the leader of a union be a woman?
(Just read an article where I learned that on the "organigramme" of France Télé, ie ALL the public channels, there is only ONE woman.)

Your report seems incomplete. Of utmost interest would have been to mention what François Chereque's fathers' career had been. I feel quite sure that if this had been the CGT, these inconvenient historical facts would have found their way in the debate.

Do tell, Bernard. I don't know anything about his father.

Well guess what, he was head of CFDT in the 1970's and was made a Prefet de Lorraine by Président Mitterrand in the early eighties if memory serves. Another dynastic family.
