The Last Stand is not yet for tomorrow. A new date for the demonstration, scheduled for June 6, was decided on Tuesday morning by the eight union leaders gathered to decide on the follow-up to the movement on pensions.
The day after the May Day mobilizationswhich gathered between 2.3 million demonstrators according to the CGT and 782,000 according to the Ministry of the Interior, the unions are now focusing on June 8, date on which the Liot group (Liberties, independents, overseas and territories group) will submit to parliament the bill for the repeal of the pension reform. “It will allow for the first time the national representation to decide by a vote”, welcomes the inter-union in a press release.
“Go meet the deputies everywhere”
While waiting for this decisive deadline, the centrals call on their militants to “go and meet the deputies everywhere”. Not a line, however, on the decision of the Elders of the Constitutional Council expected this Wednesday on the shared initiative Referendum. No leader seems to maintain the hope of a validation of this procedure after a first refusal on April 14 on an almost similar text.
As for the hand extended by Élisabeth Borne, which proposed to open “a cycle of consultations” to reopen the dialogue as soon as possible with the wish to turn the page on pensions, the organizations claim that they have still not received anything. No way for them to go there without guarantees. “The object nor the frame are precisely fixed,” they write.
The scenario of disunity on which the executive table is not relevant, the inter-union is still united and intends to speak with one voice during this meeting. It “works on common proposals involving employers” on wages, working conditions and even health. “Distrust is deep and dialogue can only be re-established if the government proves its willingness to finally take our proposals into account,” the statement concludes.
