Aeronautics is not in good shape. And it should last. Certain sectors of the industry, such as the automobile industry, are struggling. Certain professions, to use the official terminology, are threatened with obsolescence. On the other hand, in the same regions, nearby, there are companies that are struggling to recruit. Like those of health, for example. Today, when an employee loses his job because his business is bad, he is unemployed. Eventually it forms. But generally he struggles to find work in his sector. The “Collective Transitions” device, the birth of which has just been formalized by the Ministry of Labor, following an express consultation with the social partners, aims to make all this more fluid. It is now stalled and the first employees to benefit from it will be able to do so from the beginning of next month.

On the employee side, it is based on volunteering. If your company considers that your job is threatened, and that it passes an internal agreement to register in the “Collective Transitions” device, it will inform you and give you the possibility of registering in the process. If you have at least two years of seniority, you can be trained, completely free of charge, in a new profession for which there are opportunities in your employment pool. No need to go digging into your personal training account. It is the State that pays, via the envelope of 500 million euros provided for the national employment fund. You will first meet with a career adviser and a representative of the local association for professional transition, who will be the linchpin of this system. At the end of your training, you will be accompanied until you find your new job. This should be quick since precisely your training will have been chosen according to needs. If, however, your training project fails, you can find your job in your original company.

For smaller boxes, a standard agreement will soon be available that they will only have to copy and paste. “Collective transitions” targets all companies, including the smallest. For them, moreover, those with less than 300 employees, the remuneration and training of departing employees will be fully supported by the State. For the bigger ones, they will have to contribute to the costs.
