The President of the Republic did not give the details of the arbitrations carried out, it is Elisabeth Borne who must take care of it on January 10th.

But he explained that there was a need: “ work longer », thus ratifying the postponement of the legal retirement age which represents the basis of this revisited reform which should make it possible to ensure the distribution system.

A reform ” just to hear the Head of State: To do this, the lengthening of our working careers will be gradual. It will be done in stages over nearly 10 years. It will also be fair taking into account long careers, choppy careers, the difficulty of certain tasks, certain trades “.

For his part, the deputy RN Laurent Jacobelli reprimands a president “ schizophrenic ” and ” paradoxical “. “ He explains to us that he wants to be a builder, that he wants to build the future of our children, then announces to us in the same sentence that there will be a reform of unemployment benefits and pension reform. : hardening. Rather, he will be a president who destroys our social model, destroys solidarity and fraternity and who builds a very bleak future for our children. “, he adds.
