Strike against pension reform in France

Action against the pension reform in Paris following the wish of the LREM deputy, Pacôme Rupin, where the presence of Gérald Darmanin (Minister of Action and public accounts) is announced.

The 2019 French pension reform plan strike began on 5 December to protest against broad changes to France’s pension system proposed by French President Emmanuel Macron. Reforming the pensions was one of President Macron’s promises and there are three primary proposals of the pension reform plan. The first is to create a universal state retirement plan, which would replace the 42 individual retirement plans that exist in France. The second is a “points system”, to give a pension in proportion to the contributions paid. The third is to “improve the pensions of the most disadvantaged”.

 The result of the system would increase the retirement age of many jobs in France.
