The financing conference on the balance of the pension system continues in a tense atmosphere. Wednesday February 19, on the eve of a new day of action against the reform, the CGT threatens to no longer participate. The union deplores an impossible compromise.
The CGT threatens, Wednesday, February 19, to slam the door of the funding conference on pensions, which began only the day before. The task of the working group is to reflect on the balance of the pension system. In the morning, at the microphone of Radio Classique, Catherine Perret, CGT confederal secretary in charge of pensions, assured that the union was leaving the conference. “There is no room for maneuver to really work project against project in terms of financing”, she explained.
Unsa refuses to leave the conference
A few hours later, the CGT said in a statement that it will not leave “right now”, but that“In the absence of an answer, it will ask its governing bodies next week the question of the relevance of maintaining its presence” at the conference. The Secretary of State in charge of pension reform reacted. For Laurent Pietraszewski, the conference continues: “It’s not just the CGT in the landscape.” Like Unsa who, for his part, refuses to leave the table.
