Résumé / Abstract :

In the 1980s, to address financial difficulties, the CFDT (a French reformist union) proposed an original solution?the union voucher?aimed at broadening its membership base and generating new resources. It affords unions with funding from a company, which annually distributes vouchers to employees, who can remit the voucher (or not) to unions of their choice. This mechanism is based both on company financing and the individual choices of employees. In the early 1990s, the insurance company AXA experimented with and then adopted this solution. This article traces the history of the union voucher and assesses the union?s experience.
