From daily The Morning Star in Britain:

FRENCH Labour Minister Muriel Penicaud gave notice yesterday that President Emmanuel Macron’s government is “changing the rules of the game” to rejig employment law.
She presented draft legislation to a cabinet meeting yesterday which unions fear will ditch hard-won worker protection.
The government intends to pass its legislation this summer by presidential decree, truncating parliamentary debate.
She stressed that a total of 48 meetings with trade unions and employers’ organisations are scheduled to discuss the measures.
The militant CGT union has urged a national day of protests and strikes against the anti-worker legislation on September 12, three days before the annual Fete de l’Humanite begins in Paris.
