Unions continue to mobilise over pensions

France
After the major national demonstration on 7 September and further action on 15 September to coincide with the vote in the National Assembly, unions are now mobilising for the 23 September in anticipation of the debate beginning in the Senate on 5 October. The demonstration on 7 September prompted a response from the government but unions still reject proposals that will mean deferring the retirement age from 60 to 62 and the age at which a full pension is paid from 65 to 67. The unions are also challenging the resulting additional years of contributions that will be required and continue to demand that the government takes account of the arduousness of occupations in the pensions system.
