The major projects of his career

Clause Molière on the construction projects, the postponement of the deduction at source of tax on income, the directive on posted workers, account drudgery… Not a topic on which the president of Capeb is requested to give his opinion, and thus defend the interests of thousands of artisans and patrons of TPE, which have to face tough competition and a regulation that is equally. It is, as well as Patrick Liébus sometimes find themselves in disagreement with the Medef, which does not include large firms in the CONSTRUCTION industry, and the CGPME. For a greater impact in the large joint bodies and social dialogue in general, Capeb was so pleased that the UPA (Union of craft), of which she was one of the components will be transformed at the end of 2016 in U2P (Union of companies of proximity), receiving in her womb the Union of the liberal professions. “The folding seats, it is finished. We are going to take the place of our own ” was said by Patrick Liébus to The Express. In the background, the rules of representativeness of employers ‘ organizations, the U2P claiming to have legitimacy to speak on behalf of two-thirds of the companies in france and because of this, 25% of employees…

 

Also a director of the scientific and technical Centre for building (because it holds, for example, that the craftsmen do not go to the side of the digital transition), vigilant to ensure that its members acquire the necessary qualifications to be certified in terms of environmental standards, the president of Capeb don’t forget that the question of employment remains central in the country.

 

It is, as well as Patrick Liébus was the rapporteur, in 2014 a notice of the Council’s economic, social and environmental on the ” mix of business “. While 11% (only) of employees in the building are women, between 2001 and 2012, the number of women has doubled… “one of our horses to battle,” recalls Patrick Liébus. Capeb has actually started the contest “Join the building trades to women” to ” gender diversity to become a reality, once and for all “.

 

A speech hammered in 2015 on the occasion of the 25 years of the EBC (European Builders Confederation) : “young people are struggling to find their place. The university seems too often the only path to follow. We need to show young people that our sector offers many opportunities “.And all the young people, it also means the girls : “We must fight stereotypes and cultural barriers that suggest that women are not strong enough to work in our sector “.
