"Serious" situation at SNCF. SNCF CEO Jean-Pierre Farandou said on Tuesday that the situation was "serious" and "Worrying" for the company, which is already facing "more than 700 million euros of economic impact" because of the conflict over pension reform. "A company and its employees never emerge unscathed from more than a month on strike", he emphasizes, responding to an open letter from the CGT leader dated January 3.
Request to abandon the pivotal age. It is notably rejected by the CFDT, which asked for its abandonment by Friday, the day of a meeting between the government and the social partners to discuss a conference on financing the pension system. Friday, "in the state of tension in which our country is, it would be fashionable to have an announcement that the pivotal age has been withdrawn from the current bill, otherwise the CFDT will not be a lasting part of this discussion"said Laurent Berger. .
Right forces debate in Senate. The government's plan on points retirement, which is to be presented to the Council of Ministers on January 24, is not expected in Parliament until mid-February, but the Senate has taken the lead in organizing a debate on this subject qualified as "highly flammable" by the chairman LR of the Social Affairs commission Alain Milon.
