Strike against pension reform: At least 200 collection points on Thursday according to the CGT

There will be at least 200 rallying points for the day of anti-pension reform anti-union anti-union mobilization scheduled for Thursday, January 19, Céline Verzeletti, confederal secretary of the CGT, said on Monday

They will be many. Unions are identifying at least “200 assembly points” in France as part of Thursday’s mobilization day against pension reform, Céline Verzeletti, CGT confederation secretary, said on Monday, January 16.

“Start of a powerful mobilization for long-term pensions”

The Parisian demonstration will move from Place de la République to Place de la Nation around 2pm, behind the representatives of the eight main French unions. Calls for strikes had also been filed for the affected professions, emphasized Céline Verzeletti.

The mobilization should be strong in companies whose employees are at risk of losing their special pension schemes (RATP, EDF, GRDF, etc.). The CGT is in favor of extendable strikes: “It is very important to organize general meetings to decide what to do next,” said the union leader.

The CFDT, the CGT, FO, the CFE-CGC, the CFTC, the Unsa, Solidaires and the FSU last week announced this first mobilization appointment which, according to them, aims to “give the beginning of a strong mobilization in the long term pensions .

That same evening, a union meeting is held at Solidaires headquarters in Paris to decide what to do next. “When there are many people, it is a dynamic that must be maintained and we need a new appointment very quickly,” added Céline Verzeletti, referring to a new mobilization “from the following week”. A demonstration in Paris is also planned for Saturday 21st, at the call of youth organizations mostly belonging to left-wing parties.
