Because of the law, independent delegates do not have the same rights as union delegates. This is unfair and discriminatory, which is why ALEBA is striving to change these laws. Therefore, we would like all neutral delegates to be informed about all matters in which they are excluded by law.

 

  Independent delegate

Participation in negotiations on collective agreements (Art. L.162-1) No Yes
Disclosure of information from a trade union within the company (Art. L.414-16) No Yes

Participation in negotiations on a plan to maintain employment (Art. L.513-4) No

ALEBA considers itself the voice of ALL these independent, so-called neutral delegates and encourages them to represent their interests in the next social elections in March 2024.

The following table lists the benefits to which ALEBA delegates are entitled compared to independent delegates.
