Édouard Philippe received the social partners on Thursday 13 February to discuss the pension reform and in particular the issue of hardship.
Between advances and dead ends, the pension reform is still debated. Thursday, February 13 in the morning, Édouard Philippe received the social partners for discussions around certain points of the text. First, an agreement was reached on the minimum pension for those who have worked their entire lives. It would be increased in 2025 to 85% of the minimum wage, and even for those who worked part-time. But no question of going beyond for the government, which regrets the CFDT of Laurent Berger.
Progressive retirement open to public service
The age at which it will be possible to benefit from progressive retirement will be maintained at 60, it will also be open to public officials. A device that allows you to accumulate a pension while working part-time. On the other hand, no progress on early retirement for jobs deemed difficult. The unions want to extend the consideration of arduousness to difficult postures, heavy loads, vibrations and chemical risks. Request refused for the moment by the government.
