Pension reform: "We must amplify" the mobilization on February 7, calls Berger


The leader of the CFDT reacted after the interview with Prime Minister Elisabeth Borne Thursday evening on France 2.

"We must amplify" the mobilization against the pension reform during the day of action on February 7, judged Thursday evening the leader of the CFDT Laurent Berger, who regretted the absence of "empathy" expressed by the First Minister Elisabeth Borne on France 2.

Reacting hotly after an interview during which the Prime Minister returned to the reform measures, Laurent Berger regretted that we had "not heard of work".

However, "it's work that we should have talked about this evening to show a minimum of empathy", he regretted, adding: "We have the impression that there is not at the moment a social movement in this country.

"People want us to talk tonight about their work, about taking into account what they express," he insisted, recalling the two days of action on January 19 and 31, this last date having aroused the “biggest” mobilization “for 30 years”.

“Unfair and brutal” reform for FO

During the next day decided by the inter-union, Tuesday, February 7, "we must continue the mobilization" of January 19 and 31 and "we must amplify it", insisted the union leader.

As for the following day, Saturday 11, it will offer "the possibility of coming to demonstrate, including for workers, workers who do not necessarily come during the week, including with their families", to "show that there is a real discontent and real mobilization,” he continued.

He welcomed Ms Borne's announcement that financial sanctions could be applied to companies that do not act in favor of the employment of seniors.

“I give him the point,” he said.

But it is the postponement of the legal age to 64 that makes "this reform is unfair", he insisted.

“When will the government, Ms. Borne, hear this call from the world of work (saying) this reform we do not want?

he wondered.

The reform is "unfair and brutal", added the leader of FO, Frédéric Souillot, also questioned in the context of the debate which followed the intervention of the Prime Minister.
