What to expect Thursday for the first day of mobilization against the pension reform? To what extent will your daily life be upset? I ask you the question because for the moment, we do not know precisely the extent of this movement. But one has chosen is sure, many sectors will be disrupted, starting with energy.
Risk of gasoline shortage?
Refineries in particular. Remember last October, files waiting at stations to refuel. The oil CGT first announces two days of strike on January 19 and 26, then from February 6. A renewable strike which could well lead to new supply problems in stations.
On the EDF side, the unions are preparing to mobilize massively. They have reduced production in power plants. An action which aims to penalize EDF, but which should not lead to cuts.
Black day on the transport side
And for transport too, it will be complicated. First, major disruptions are to be expected. The RATP and SNCF unions have promised to do everything possible to oppose this reform. We must therefore expect a dark day.
In addition to rail, truck drivers, ambulance drivers, car and taxi drivers or fund carriers show their disagreement and are therefore preparing to launch an unlimited movement from Thursday. Disturbances are also announced in the air. The unions of hostesses and stewards, respondents to the strike. Difficult at this time to know more about the extent, but traffic will likely be impacted.
And the public service will also be there. The intersyndicale also calls on all public officials to mobilize against this reform. Schools, hospitals or even administrations had to respond massively to this call. Something rarer, the police follow the movement. They will come forward in particular to keep their special pension scheme.
