New round of discussions for the Premier to build the rest of the five-year term. This week, Élisabeth Borne meets with employers' representatives in Matignon. Accompanied by the Minister of Labour, Olivier Dussopt, she will first receive the boss of the Medef, Geoffroy Roux de Bézieux, this Monday at 17:30 pm, followed by his counterpart of the CPME, François Asselin, at 18:45 pm. On Tuesday, she will close these exchanges with the vice-president of the Union of Local Enterprises (U2P), Jean-Christophe Repon, at 19pm.
Among the topics discussed should be "the employment of seniors" and "the economy", said Friday the boss of the big bosses, on Europe 1. "The impact of interest rates is starting to bite on corporate margins [...], there are still a number of concerns" for employers, noted Geoffroy Roux de Bézieux. The MEDEF representative, however, believed that the companies "did the job" on the issue of wages, brandished by the workers' representatives.
These bilateral talks take place a few days after other, similar, with the five employee representative bodies. Elisabeth Borne had received, Tuesday 16 and Wednesday 17 May, the bosses of Force ouvrière, the CFDT, the CFE-CGC, the CFTC and the CGT. The objective of these successive meetings is "To develop the social agenda in order to build a new pact for life at work". The majority also hoped to rebuild links with trade unions, scalded by the sequence on pension reform.

Warning of the CFDT
During the presentation of her roadmap at the end of April, Elisabeth Borne indicated that she wanted to build a "pact for life at work" with the social partners by 14 July. The results of this first round of exchanges with the unions are however mixed, the representatives of the employees remain on their guard: the Montreuil plant quickly denounced an "employers' monologue", calling again the employees to mobilize on June 6 against the pension reform. "We opened the ball but we did not dance," commented mischievously Frédéric Souillot, head of FO.
The same goes for Laurent Berger: "If the game is open to achieve social progress, we will play it thoroughly. But otherwise...", warned the leader of the CFDT, in an interview with the Journal du dimanche. His organization will, however, participate following the exchanges, wishing to "use the strength of the social movement to obtain advances for workers".
