The representative trade unions can take legal action any action arising from legal, regulatory or contractual provisions governing the dismissal for economic reasons of an employee, without having to justify a mandate from the person concerned. The latter must have been notified by registered letter with acknowledgment of receipt and not have objected to it within fifteen days from the date on which the trade union organization notified him of its intention. At the end of this period, the trade union organization informs the employer by registered letter with acknowledgment of receipt of its intention to take legal action. The employee can always intervene in the proceedings initiated by the union.
