The Secretary of State for Transport Jean-Baptiste Djebbari denounced Monday the “disinformation” and the “manipulations, in particular on the part of the political oppositions” on the pension reform project, referring also “to the responsibility of the unions”.
“There was still a lot of disinformation and manipulation, especially on the part of political oppositions,” said the Secretary of State on France 2.
Asked about the presentation of the project by Prime Minister Edouard Philippe on Wednesday, six days after the start of the massive strike movement in transport, Mr. Djebbari replied that “the political calendar has been set and has been for several weeks”.
“It was not the government which set December 5 as a day of strike. We have been saying for several months that trade union consultations would be held until mid-December and that the Prime Minister would announce the architecture of the reform. Today we are there and I take this point of Wednesday as an event which I hope will make clarity in the minds of the French “, he pleaded.
“The political world is not limited to the CGT”
If he greeted unions like Unsa and CFDT, “who come to discuss” and “who are demanding on the demands”, he cast shame on those “who do not want this reform at all. , like any of the previous reforms, like the CGT “.
Like the charge of the Ministers of the Economy Bruno Le Maire and of the Ecological Transition Elisabeth Borne on Sunday, Jean-Baptiste Djebbari targets the central Montreuil: “the political world is not limited to the CGT”.
According to him, “this reform is necessary, it must be done in dialogue (…). Many things are negotiable but not the withdrawal as proposed by Philippe Martinez”, the secretary general of the CGT.
