Around 1,300 more people would benefit from this mechanism, which has already been applied to most of the group's 17,000 employees.

For employees on minimum wage, their partial unemployment will be increased to 100% of their salary.

Drones, circulating without anyone on board, whose mass exceeds 800 grams, must be equipped as of May 1 with an “electronic or digital signaling device and 'a light signaling device'. The objective: to be able to detect them in flight.
