The Grenelle Agreements or Grenelle Reports were negotiated 25 and 26 May, during the crisis of May 1968 in France by the representative of the Pompidou government, the trade unions, and the Organisation patronale. Among the negotiators were Jacques Chirac, then the young Secretary of State of Local Affairs, and Georges S guy, representative of the Conf d ration g n rale du travail. The Grenelle Agreements, concluded 27 May 1968-but not signed-led to a 35% increase in the minimum wage (salaire minimum interprofessionnel garanti) and 10% increase in average real wages. It also provided for the establishment of the trade union section of business (Section syndicale d'entreprise), through the act of 27 December, 1968. Rejected by the base, the agreements did not immediately solve the social crisis and the strikes continued. But three days later on 30 May, Charles de Gaulle, back in Paris after meeting with the Jacques Massu in Baden-Baden, Germany, the previous day, was comforted by an enormous Gaullist counter-demonstration on Champs- lys es. He decided to dissolve the National Assembly and to call for elections on 30 June 1968.
