Unions and employers are up in arms against the government over the Action Logement budget


The finance bill (PLF) for 2023 plans to deduct 300 million euros from the budget of the organization which helps employees find accommodation.

The lull will have been short-lived for Action Logement, the former 1% Housing which helps employees to find housing by developing a housing stock in particular.

After having taken 500 million in 2020 from the joint body to finance the state budget, then 1.3 billion the following year, the government had left Action Logement alone this year.

But this will not be the case in 2023. As part of the 2023 finance bill (PLF), the government provides that Action Logement

“pays a contribution of 300 million euros to the National Fund for Aid to stone”

, according to the official text of the PLF.

The unions and employers' organisations, which manage Action Logement jointly, were quick to react.

A text signed by the CFDT, the CGT, FO, the CFE-CGC, the CFTC but also the Medef and the Cpme evokes a

“break in trust and a contempt for social dialogue”


They are all the more upset as negotiations are to take place in the coming months to define a new agreement for the period 2023-2027 in order to define the use of the funds received by Action Logement.

The organization is financed by a contribution from employers.

Regular punctures

This contribution represents approximately 1.7 billion euros each year.

This has allowed, over the years, to build up a heritage of more than 80 billion.

The organization is regularly the object of the covetousness of the State.

Bercy is even regularly suspected of wanting to directly integrate the receipts of Action Logement into the receipts of the State.

To protect itself, Action Logement had signed with the government, in 2019, a voluntary investment plan of 9 billion euros for the period 2018-2022.

In the end, it didn't have much effect.

This foreseeable drain on the state will not be without consequences for the group's activity.

The social partners point out that

"for the year 2023 alone, it would be 26,000 fewer affordable housing units to be offered to employees, if this PLF project was validated as it stands at the end of its parliamentary course"
