On 9 October 1936 the Confédération générale du patronat français (CGPF) held a general assembly to elect its new board. Gignoux was elected president. He proved an energetic leader. He said that employers must not try to avoid their responsibilities, but must confirm their authority through united action. In the early part of 1939 Gigoux warned the CGPF members of the danger of government demands to rehire workers who had been fired after the general strike, since this would only lead to further government intervention. He urged industrialists to make the present arrangement work, since socialism was the only alternative.
