In July 2002, the French and US NCPs received a request for a review from a trade union alleging that a US subsidiary of a French multinational enterprise was breaching the employment and industrial relations provisions of the Guidelines.

The specific instance was concluded when the trade union withdrew its request after the parties settled their differences through a separate process.
