    On July 8th, AmCham held a round table discussion with union boss, Jean-Claude Mailly, Secretary General of France's third largest union group, the Force Ouvriere (FO).  It was an excellent chance to hear about his priorities during a time when President Sarkozy is trying to implement labor market reforms. Mailly, who comes from a family of Force Ouvriere union leaders, was named Secretary General of FO in 2004 and re-elected in 2007.  He joined FO in 1978, after graduating with a degree in Economy and Sociology and starting to work at the Caisse Nationale d’Assurance Maladie (CNAM).  He rose from CNAM FO delegate to become assistant of the Secretary General in 1989 and a member of the governing board in 2000, where he was in charge of the press.  From 1994-1999 he was a member of the French government's Conseil Economique et Social.
