Themes: Economic Life, Jobs & amp; skills, Research & amp; Innovation
Our current technological knowledge account for only 1% of those we will have in 2050. In private life, professional, businesses, and professional sectors, radical changes will take place and question our model of society our social model, and by extension redefine trade union action.
It is in this perspective that the FGTA-FO wanted to organize an information morning June 21, 2016 entitled New technologies: what social consequences? In his introduction, the Secretary General Dejan Terglav insisted: all professional sectors are concerned!
First guest, presented by the robot Nao (no negotiations here), Professor Alain Goudey (http://alain.goudey.eu/) gave an overview of the extent of the changes that might happen in the future close. If certain ads as eternal life or transfer his brain into the body of a robot may seem surprising, the speaker wished to recall how current technologies exceeded the most optimistic forecasts.
The full house (250 people!) Remained silent when the researcher reported that 45 to 70% of trades are automated or will soon. How many jobs will be destroyed, how many will be created? No one seems to know.
Alain Goudey, it is difficult to have a vision, it is essential to do so for now take the right options. Faced with the threat of a structural increase in unemployment, it is the company of choice, and individual and collective behaviors that will define the future. The problem is not new technology, it’s what is done. The example of the self-checkout in supermarkets is quite telling. You can replace all the cashiers but we do not do it because the time saved is actually not at the rendezvous, and many people prefer to deal with a cashier.
Alain Goudey invited all participants to capitalize on the human and build alternatives to business-models decried such qu’Uber or Amazon if they want to positively support this digital revolution.
Following this remarkable presentation, two round tables led by Hugues Marsault, accountant, were held: “Employment, Training and Social: What future in the branches? “And” Employment, training and social: What future in business? “.
Participants included Marie-Béatrice Levaux: President of the Federation of Private Employers of France (FEPEM), Anne Mercier: Vice President of the National Commission employment of the National Federation of Farmers (FNSEA), Thierry Gregoire President of Seasonal the Union of Trades and hospitality industries (UMIH) and David Giovannuzzi: Director of Collective Agreements AG2R La Mondiale, for the first, then Isabelle Calvez: human resources Director Carrefour France, James Gisbert: social engineering Advisor Dominique Riera: Lawyer in labor law, and Charles Froment, Board Director at Taddeo, for the second.
All stressed the inevitability of the changes to come, especially for demanding jobs, but stressed the importance of human relations and the complementary nature of the new technologies with the forms of current activities.
To conclude this morning which was a resounding success among members, Dejan insisted that everyone reflect on ways to accompany the technological revolution to defend the employees, employment, and allow the unions to continue.
