The main French trade unions have proposed a “mediation” to the government to try to bring positions closer together on the pension reform, although the executive has been quick to clarify that “it is not mandatory” for there to be intermediaries between the two sides to talk.

Coinciding with another day of strikes against the reform, the Secretary General of the General Confederation of Labor (CGT), Philippe Martinezhas raised the issue of “suspending” the most damaging aspects of the new law, including postponing the retirement age from 62 to 64, and “appointing a mediator”.

Thus, the workers’ organizations will sign it this Tuesday at a meeting, from which a letter will be addressed to the President of France, Emmanuel Macron, offering a new form of dialogue to directly try to calm things down. after two months of almost constant mobilizations in the streets.

But the government spokesman Oliver Veran, has already said at a press conference that he does not see the need for intermediaries, because “you can speak directly”. In this sense, he explained that Macron is “ready to receive the union leaders” once the Constitutional Council has ruled on the reform.

Garbage collection strike in Paris suspended

On the other hand, the General Confederation of Labor (CGT) has announced the suspension of the garbage strike that has generated thousands of tons of waste in Paris.

The strike against the collection and burning of waste was one of the most visible mobilizations in Paris, where they gathered last week more than 10,000 tons garbage on the street. The mayor, Anne Hidalgo, had reported on Tuesday that 7,000 tons still had to be collected.
