The trade unions are worried about the push of the far right, while the bosses insist on the reforms to be carried out for the re-elected president.



The trade unions and employers' organizations welcomed the result of the second round of the presidential election, giving Emmanuel Macron the winner and re-elected against Marine Le Pen.

On the side of the bosses, it is the victory of the outgoing president that we praise, while insisting on the projects to be carried out.

Among the unions, relief at the defeat of the far-right candidate is in order, even if they are worried about her surge to more than 40%.

The worst was avoided today.

But nearly 42% of the votes for the far right means that nothing can and should be as before

, ”tweeted Laurent Berger, secretary general of the CFDT, the first union in France.

The Republic is safe.

And fighting for social justice in a democratic framework remains possible.

But a vote for the Republic which is only in the majority among the oldest and most favored must question all the democrats

”, tweeted for his part Laurent Escure, of Unsa, giving “

appointment on May 1

”.

Several unions (CGT, Unsa, Solidaires, FSU, Unef...) are calling for a mobilization for Labor Day to make their demands heard: increase in wages and pensions, emphasis on public services, opposition to a postponement of the legal retirement age, ecological transition, "

opposition to all forms of discrimination

If Solidaires welcomed in a press release “

the defeat of the far-right candidate

”, the union judges that “

the electoral and militant strengthening of the far right is linked to the anti-social policies carried out by successive governments

”.

Today, Emmanuel Macron begins a new five-year term on the ruins of the old one.

[...] Even if he has the legality of the ballot box, he has no popular legitimacy to apply his anti-social reforms, starting with that of pensions

, ”he added.

The same goes for the FSU, which "

welcomes the fact that the immediate danger of an accession to power by the extreme right during the presidential election has been averted

", while noting that "

the danger continues to be present and the far right to strengthen, election after election

.

It is liberal policies, their capture of all the wealth produced and their lot of individualization and degradation of living conditions that favor this progress.

It is also the rejection of Emmanuel Macron's balance sheet

, ”she continues.
