Marylise Léon, general secretary of the CFDT, was the guest of “Quatre Vérités” on France 2 on Tuesday.
The government decided on Monday not to validate, as it stands, the new unemployment insurance agreement negotiated between the social partners. Matignon believes that there remains “uncertainty” concerning the taking into account of the consequences of the increase in the retirement age on the evolution of the compensation rules for seniors. Guest of “Quatre Vérités” on France 2, Tuesday November 28, the general secretary of the CFDT declared “not to think” that the government “return the agreement”.
“He wants to have more elements on senior issues. That is to say that everything that is in the agreement today will be approved”assured Marylise Léon. “It only postpones for a few months the measures that have been decided”she continued, indicating that it is now “time to talk”.
The idea of reducing the duration of compensation for those over 55
The Minister of the Economy, Bruno Le Maire, announced that he wanted to align the duration of unemployment compensation for those over 55 with that of others, which would correspond to a reduction in their duration of compensation. Marylise Léon specifies that the subject was discussed “as part of the last negotiation on unemployment insurance” and that’“a negotiation on the employment of seniors” will be open. For her, “It is out of the question to touch anything as long as we do not know what companies are prepared to commit to in order to maintain employment.” “Discussions need to open up, and they are certainly a little more complicated than a simple alignment of rules”added Marylise Léon.
Also asked about the idea ofElizabeth Bound to restrict conventional ruptures, the general secretary of the CFDT said “ready to talk about it, if we don’t stop to only wanting to patch or force employees to stay at all costs in a job that does not suit them, and which does not suit the employer either..
