The leader of the CFDT Laurent Berger evacuates Saturday, January 7 any possibility of "
" between the executive and his union if the government maintains the very probable postponement of the legal retirement age on the occasion of its future reform.
It must be clear, even with positive measures on long careers or hardship, we remain opposed to the reform with an age measure.
There will be no deal with the CFDT
, ”says the general secretary of the CFDT, the first French union in an interview published on le parisien.fr.

Three days before the presentation of an explosive pension reform scheduled for Tuesday, the unions are increasing the pressure against the government which plans to implement a probable postponement of the retirement age to 64, with accompanying measures on the employment of seniors or hardship.
If Élisabeth Borne continues to think that the right reform is the postponement of the legal age, we will do everything to make the government back down.
And we will use all the levers that are ours!
“Warned the N.1 of the CFDT who will meet his counterparts on Tuesday evening to consider a joint response to the government project.
Laurent Berger also disagrees with the argument of the executive ensuring that the pension reform would derive its legitimacy from the re-election of Emmanuel Macron in 2022, of which it appeared in the program.
The French did not give a discharge on pensions at the time of the presidential election, we must stop telling stories (...) If we struggled so much between the two rounds of the presidential election, it is to avoid the election of Marine Le Pen, it is, obviously, not because we wanted the 65 years
, ”declared Laurent Berger.
He also asks the political movements to let the unions lead the social movement that is looming while the left-wing parties united under the banner of Nupes are planning a joint meeting from January 17 in Paris.
I believe that left-wing parties would be inspired to let us manage social mobilization.
It is up to the trade unions to set the tone and kick off the mobilization
,” asked Laurent Berger.
