After the contradictory statements of recent days on the postponement of the legal age of retirement, the blur persists. At a symposium held Thursday in the Senate on the pension reform, the quasi-totality of the social partners have called on the government to get out of the "fog". So much so that the vast majority of them (except FNSEA and CFDT) were not applicants of this systemic reform. On the other hand, all acknowledge having a relationship of "sincere and frank" with the High Commissioner to the pension reform Jean-Paul Delevoye, appreciate his method, and keep their trust. "It would be a shame that external interventions come to ruin this trust so that it is a month to conclude. There cannot be two laws," pensions, " said Frédéric Sap (CFDT). Sub-course, a law systemic with the introduction of the universal regime, and a law-parametric postponing the age.

"The fog does not go away. It is said that Mrs. Buzyn had the courage. It has been mostly common sense. It is lacking in a number of spheres. But there is no more clear," said Claude Tendil (Medef), that is, to him, in favour of a deferral of progressive retirement age to 64 years of age. And remember that pensions weigh 320 billion euros, 14% of the GDP, a world record. "The starting age to 62 years is an anomaly in Europe. Most of the neighbouring countries are 65 years of age," he continued.", When it is blur, it is that there is a wolf."
The unions, are all opposed to such a measure. "When it is blur, it is that there is a wolf. And the wolf will soon be out of the woods. We begin to prepare our troops and the fall will be warm," said Catherine Perret (CGT). "The fog is more as a result. We don't eat with concepts but with euros. The government is in the process of making a reform, which we will not know the value of the point that, by 2025," cautions Philippe Pihet (FO), in which the union is also opposed to the reform. "Between the status quo and the revolution there was a place for reform. But the choice was made to make a clean sweep of the past," regretted Serge Lavagna (CFE-CGC).
Even Frédéric Sap - whose central supports the reform of the government - pointed out that "the postponement of the age would be a red line and that a systemic reform is not intended to make savings, but the better-called social". "The government is considering modulate in 2020 the rate of indexation depending on the pension levels, it is the opposite of the principle 1 euro contributed that gives you the same rights. It should be logical!", observe meanwhile Serge Lavagna (CFE-CGC).

"systemic reform should not be financial, but the government's decisions prove the opposite with the freezing of pensions by 2018, their under-appreciation in 2019, the increase of the CSG, has also pointed out the senator René-Paul Savary, rapporteur on pensions from the social affairs committee of the Senate. "The consultation cannot be reduced to a single listening phase. It is necessary now to tell us more and open up the time of the deliberation by the elected representatives, who will help enrich the debate, because it is a reform that goes beyond the retreats and is a true reform societal", he concluded.
"I am a man of commitment and these commitments may not be questioned. When there was the media storm, it is necessary to let fall in the dust. We continue our path," concluded Jean-Paul Delevoye.Updated Date: 24 March 2019, 00:00
