The Grenelle Agreements ( ) were negotiated 25 and 26 May, during the crisis of May 1968 in Francemarker by the representative of the Pompidou government, the trade union, and the Organisation patronale. Among the negotiators were Jacques Chirac, then the young Secretary of State of Local Affairs, and Georges Séguy, representative of the Confédération générale du travail.

The Grenelle Agreements, concluded 27 May 1968—but not signed—led to a 25% 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 the 30 May, Charles de Gaulle back in Paris after meeting with the Jacques Massu in Baden-Badenmarker, Germanymarker, the previous day, was comforted by an enormous Gaullist counter-demonstration on Champs-Élysées. He decided to desolve the National Assembly and to call for elections on 30 June 1968. The triumph of the Gaullists of the UDR (293 of 378 seats) ends the political crisis.

The name Grenelle is taken from the area where the agreements were negotiated, at the Ministry of Social Affairs located on the rue de Grenelle in Paris. The hotel, built in the late eighteenth century, formerly the Archbishop's Palace, was actually part of the Ministry of Labour since 1905. The "Room of Agreements", named since then, is an old dining room decorated in eighteenth-century style has been preserved.
