'Lynching' of execs only harms image of France...

The timing for embattled President Fran├žois Hollande is his Socialist government could hardly have been worse.

Just as France is desperately trying to boost investment from abroad, images of half-naked Air France execs jumping over fences into the arms of riot police were seen around the world.

The sight Air France-KLM's human resources manager Xavier Broseta and exec Pierre Plissonnier, being "almost lynched" as they fled a small mob of angry workers will hardly be filling foreign investors with glee at the thought of setting up in France.

Of course, most international bosses will be fully aware of how “social dialogue” or labour relations and talks with workers can descend into militant action in France.

 They will have heard all about the stories of “bossnappings” where workers effectively hold company chiefs hostage until they are satisfied they have got what they wanted. Full story...
