The third and fourth appointments are given!
The mobilization of this Tuesday barely coming to an end, the unions are already calling for two new days of action on February 7 and 11, at the very beginning of the winter school holidays.
After a second round still very popular, with 1.272 million people on the street according to police figures, the inter-union meeting on Tuesday evening does not intend to reduce the pressure to force the government to reverse its pension reform.
There was no doubt that the CFDT, Force Ouvrière, CFE-CGC, Unsa, Solidaires, CFTC, FSU and CGT are calling for a new showdown.
Only the date remained unknown.

The CFDT, which was campaigning to set a day of mobilization during a weekend in order to brew even wider, was therefore heard.
The challenge is to widen participation to all those who cannot strike during the week.
If the movement rises crescendo, the government will be forced to move its lines
, ”detailed at the end of last week Yvan Ricordeau, in charge of the retirement file for the reforming union.
For the moment, the union is therefore still on the side of the employee organizations which are observing with interest the first tensions within the majority.
But the desire to strike harder and more often is nevertheless there on the side of the most radical unions, CGT in the lead.
It will be necessary to harden the tone and the question of strikes including renewable strikes is posed
”, warned in the afternoon the leader of the CGT, Philippe Martinez, anticipating the meeting of the inter-union.
Faced with a government that intends to move particularly quickly to pass its reform, the toughest organizations do not want to waste time and know that they are engaged in a real race against time.
A feeling further reinforced by the success of the mobilization on Tuesday.
In several cities, such as Montpellier, Nantes, Rennes or Marseille, the participation was higher than that of January 19, when 1.12 million people had beaten the pavement, according to figures from the Ministry of the Interior.
