This Wednesday, January 15 at 9 a.m., the Joint Joint Committee began its work of discussion around the text of the pension reform in the National Assembly. However, the behind-the-scenes negotiations between the reform-carrying majority and the right took place throughout the night from Tuesday to Wednesday: they ended at 4 a.m. this morning. The government and the Elysée would have had a large presence in the negotiations in question, as reported by our colleagues from Parisian.
Several articles would have already been rewritten by the two parties, even before the start of the Joint Joint Commission: the majority as well as the right wanted to confront the opposition with an agreement in hand. However, this does not necessarily mean that the text will be adopted in this form. The Joint Joint Commission is never safe from a twist. However, we can look at the concessions made to get an idea of the type of measures that this famous agreement contains.
First of all, a measure initiated by the young deputy LR Aurélien Pradié was accepted by the presidential camp: the fact that no one is forced to contribute more than 43 years old in order to benefit from the full rate. The senatorial right, meanwhile, has also been able to have one of its recommendations accepted, namely that of retirement at age 60 for permanent disability, as well as the premium for mothers.
The phased retirement maintained at 60 years has been ruled out by the executive, as has any type of modification of the modalities of the senior index, which will be discussed and negotiated during the Commission currently being held.
