National mobilization: a test day for unions

It is a test day for unions. Thursday January 16, the scale of the demonstration against the pension reform in Paris will be closely observed. “The challenge today is to mobilize massively for the CGT, FO and Solidaires in particular, while Édouard Philippe spoke on Wednesday of a dead end strike and that the last days of national mobilization were rather in decline”, reports the journalist of France 3 Anne-Claire Le Sann from the capital.

Other sectors are taking over

Shortness of breath is also felt in transport. But if the mobilization weakens on one side, dockers, teachers and the energy sector have taken over. According to polls, the movement remains mostly supported by the French. “Enough to maintain the pressure of the unions on the government”, concludes Anne-Claire Le Sann.
