STRAIGHT. Pensions: government wants to ‘work’ with unions, but not with 64-year-olds


  • “I will not stop persuading,” Prime Minister Elizabeth Bourne said this Saturday, referring to pension reform and the next reforms she will have to implement.
  • The dismantling of Brav-M, implicated in several incidents of police violence, is “obviously not on the agenda,” the prefect of police in Paris said yesterday. The investigation was launched after a recording of statements by several of these police officers against anti-reform demonstrators was discovered.
  • Emmanuel Macron said on Friday he was “at the disposal of the inter-union” to discuss work-related issues, but without questioning his pension reform. The head of state does not want a “country in a dead end” and intends to “keep moving forward.”

Topics other than pensions to discuss with trade unions

In line with what Emmanuel Macron already announced on Friday, Olivier Véran assures the Journal du Dimanche that the government wants to “work” with unions on issues other than pension reform because “we don’t agree with the fall to 64,” he said, but other topics could be discussed, such as “career management,” “professional retraining,” or even “repricing salaries below the Smic,” he lists.
