    Confédération générale du travail and others v Premier ministre and Ministre de l'Emploi, de la Cohésion sociale et du Logement Case C-385/05 ECJ (0 other reports)

The EU Directives on a general framework for informing and consulting employees (2002/14/EC) and on collective redundancies (98/59/EC) preclude national legislation that excludes, even temporarily, a specific category of workers from the calculation of staff numbers within the meaning of these provisions. This was the ruling of the European Court of Justice (ECJ) on 18 January 2007 in a case (Case C-385/05, Confédération générale du travail and others v Premier ministre and Ministre de l'Emploi, de la Cohésion sociale et du Logement) brought by the main French trade union confederations against a government ordinance issued in 2005.
