France -Divergence on the pension reform -August 28, 2013

The government has planned to come to a deal with the social partners to overhaul the pension system through a lengthening of people's working lives. Main scenario is to make workers pay pension contributions for a period of up to 44 years starting in 2020, government sources say. As things stand, a pay-in period of 41.5 years is to be made mandatory for all by 2020, whereas today people retire after around 40.5 years in work. Notwithstanding this rapprochement the CGT, together with FO and others, continues with the preparation for a general mobilisation on 10 September. According to the CGT the prime minister dismissed the CGT’s proposals for a radical reform with short-term and long-term.
