Dear Sylvain, Thank you for your message and thank you for showing us that our Wikimedia employees are white collar workers, and as such they also have the right to be part of an organized labor movement. For those who do not know me well, I am a board member of the Geneva public sector labor union association (11 different labor unions), so I strongly encourage initiatives like the French one.
I am also a strong believer in settling disputes through negotiations and discussions between the different parties involved. A local labor union branch is a great way to ensure that the employees can voice their grievances. This whole unfortunate situation might have been avoided if the employees had been able to express their distress, and if they could have received the support of a larger labor union used to dealing with this type of management issues. Once again, thank you Sylvain for telling us about this. I now hope that you will all forgive me for preaching about labor unions...
