Pensions: CFDT and CFTC think that the legal retirement age will be 64, but this remains “unacceptable” – Understand everything about pension reform


“I have a feeling it will be 64, but I could be wrong. In any case, we had no opening to say that there would be no increase in the legal age”, declared on RTL the secretary general of the CFDT, Laurent Berger, received the day before by Prime Minister Elisabeth Borne.

But “64 years is also a sudden postponement of the legal retirement age, which nothing justifies (…) and therefore 64 years is also unacceptable”, he added.

Returning to the previous reforms, the leader of the first French union declared that the 2003 reform responded to “a pension system whose viability was seriously threatened” and that this reform was therefore “necessary”. In 2010-2013, there were “virtually the same forecasts, less brutal, but with a huge deterioration in the accounts”.

But “it is not the same thing today. That does not mean that there is no deficit, but this deficit, we can discuss it, how we fill it, ”added Laurent Berger, who recommends improving the employment rate of seniors, more lower in France than elsewhere.

The project presented on January 10

“It’s been a while since we understood that it will go to 64 years” with an “acceleration of the Touraine law” of 2014 to reach 43 annuities of contribution more quickly, indicated on Europe 1 the president of the CFTC, Cyril Chabanier.

The leader of the Christian-inspired central, who is to be received this Wednesday afternoon at Matignon, criticized “a pension reform which weighs only on employees”, also inviting him to work “on the employment of seniors” .

Elisabeth Borne receives representatives of trade unions and employers’ organizations until Wednesday evening, before presenting the pension reform project on January 10.

“There will be announcements. In the process, we meet and advise (…). We will announce joint mobilizations if it remains as it is, ”said Laurent Berger, referring to his counterparts from other unions.

“We want to do it together so much that none of us are going to declare it alone on the radio or TV. That doesn’t mean we’ll agree on everything, we don’t have the same approach. But we do not want this decline in the legal age, ”he said again.

58% of French people in favor of a strike movement according to a survey

According to an Ifop poll for the weekly Politis published on Wednesday, nearly six out of ten French people express support (39%) or sympathy (19%) for a movement of strikes and demonstrations in January. A very slight increase in approval (58% against 56%) compared to a previous survey conducted at the end of September by the same institute.

This survey was conducted by self-administered questionnaire online on December 20 and 21 with a sample of 1,016 people, representative of the French population aged 18 and over (quota method). Margin of error between 1.4 and 3.1 points.
