The French government has decided to negotiate with unions on pension reforms for a year. Reports that prime minister Jean Castex on Friday. Last year, decided to Paris, the pension system dramatically, reforming, leading to demonstrations by thousands of French exchange.
for The new pension system would have significant implications for the French workers. Thus, the statutory retirement age by two years, was increased from 62 to 64 years of age. The scheme applies only to employees who, after 1975, was born, and starting in 2022, it is on the French labour market. For the people which, after 1975, have been born and are already working, it is a transition period.
The reform will be postponed for one year, allowing the country to be able to concentrate fully on the recovery of the coronacrisis, " says Castex. "The priority now is for us to struggle with the economic crisis, employment and the fight against unemployment," said the new prime minister, who, at the beginning of July, the popular prime minister Édouard Philippe's head.
The step is also seen as a way to serve as the president and Emmanuel Macron once again some of the air to pass. Macron had lost at the end of last year, popularity from the reforms, and later came under fire for a lack of all, coronatests, and other protective equipment in France. The political party of the president of france lost in the past month, even more than in the last election.
The reforms are at the heart of Macrons to plan for a more flexible and competitive labour force and to create them. The unions are against it because they believe that workers ' hard-won benefits are being taken away from it and retired it to go backwards.
