Well, I was expanding on Jérôme's view in opposition to Martin's interpretation of it.

But I think you should consider the situation of employees in small to middling enterprises (about half of private sector employees in France, I think) who may feel that, when the public sector unions are capable of showing their teeth, that has an effect on the employee/employer balance of power that they themselves are tributary to. That is (or has been over several decades) a widely-shared perception. And one that may not be entirely mistaken, in my view.
