The main measures of the pension reform will be presented in a week by Prime Minister Élisabeth Borne. If the consultations continue between the union leaders and Matignon, the social partners fear the next announcements from the government.
Discussions on the reform of advanced pensions. The main lines of the text carried by the government will be presented in a week by Prime Minister Élisabeth Borne. Before this deadline, a dinner between majority executives and Emmanuel Macron was organized at the Elysée on Wednesday evening. This Thursday, social partners were received at Matignon.
Alea jacta is
Philippe Martinez of the CGT, Laurent Berger of the CFDT and Élisabeth Borne are continuing the consultations when the die seems already cast. During a dinner at the Elysée with executives of the majority, Emmanuel Macron confirmed his wish to postpone the legal age of departure to 65 years.
Something to annoy Laurent Berger after his interview with Élisabeth Borne: “We asked for clarification and the Prime Minister was unable to tell us why we were invited this morning and we were told that things had been arbitrated. This being so said, we fought for an hour”.
“I fear a reform which will be a measure of age and which would not take into account these two months of consultation which we have invested with conviction and with proposals. We were told that account would ultimately be taken of a part of our proposals. We are waiting for announcements”, he continues. Announcements will be made by the Prime Minister within a week. In the meantime, the feeling here from the unions is that the return to school in January should be extremely hectic.
“We reaffirmed our opposition to the report of the legal age and we insisted on the fact that all union representations are against it”, explains at the microphone of Europe 1, Philippe Martinez. “And we have already warned that if the government does not change this legal age measure or the contribution period, important things could happen as early as January,” he concluded.
