Tick tock… The time for pension reform is fast approaching. Elisabeth Borne’s long-awaited announcements are scheduled for January 10, 2023, and could again be postponed for a few hours. According to our colleagues from Marianne, the Prime Minister would have revealed to a small circle of Macronist parliamentarians that she could postpone the presentation of the text from 24 to 48 hours in order to make some adjustments. And for good reason: for lack of a presidential majority, the tenant of Matignon must go out of her way to ensure the essential support of the Republicans. This Tuesday, January 2, 2023, Elisabeth Borne finally revealed that she would unveil her pension reform on January 23, in the Council of Ministers.
At the start of the year, it is time for the final negotiations. On Tuesday January 3 and Wednesday January 4, 2023, Elisabeth Borne receives the social partners to refine the pension reform. Unions, employers… On what points are they ready to make concessions? On the contrary, what are the biggest disagreements with the executive’s project? While the key point of the reform seems to be the decline in the retirement age, many other measures are the subject of debate, as franceinfo reminds us. In our slideshow below, discover the limits of the social partners on each point of the reform.
Pension reform was an essential subject of Emmanuel Macron’s wishes to the French for the new year. The President of the Republic assured that the objective was to “consolidate our system by distribution which would otherwise be threatened”. He also confirmed that “new rules” should be in force “from the end of summer 2023”.
