“A very nice victory.” Sophie Binet, the general secretary of the CGT, welcomes Apolline Morning this Wednesday on RMC and RMC Story of the agreement reached between the unions and the SNCF on the end of careers, making it possible to circumvent the effects of the pension reform passed last year. And she hopes other companies will adopt similar measures.

“These are advances that will benefit all railway workers, and which have been won in particular by the CGT,” emphasizes Sophie Binet. “It’s a great victory, I’m really very proud of that. On this reform retirements, we have always said that the fight does not stop and continues. We are fighting in all professional sectors to be able to have early departures which recognize the arduousness of a certain number of professions. oil and that it be extended to all professional sectors.”

The general secretary of the CGT recognizes “of course” a form of revenge after the long standoff with the government in spring 2023, over the form of pensions. “Unfortunately, it is not enough to completely cancel it, but it limits its impact,” said Sophie Binet. “We have not hidden that we were going to continue the fight, we prove it with this victory.

After pensions, it is salaries which will be at the heart of the demands in the May 1 demonstrations this year. “We are mobilizing everywhere, in all companies, to obtain salary increases,” explains Sophie Binet. “What we are seeing is that our salaries are collapsing in the face of inflation.

“Today is Workers’ Day, and it is an opportunity to say that society only runs thanks to our work and that it must be recognized and remunerated,” adds the general secretary of the CGT. We are going to mobilize for wages and also to denounce the social destruction led by the government and the employers, particularly on unemployment insurance.” At least 270 demonstrations or gatherings will take place this Wednesday throughout France.
