The winner of the primary for the Republicans is not yet known, but Philippe Martinez, leader of the CGT Union, warned Sunday that “the mobilization will be news” if the right wins in 2017
Philippe Martinez, leader of the CGT unions warned on Sunday that “the mobilization will be the news” if the right wins in 2017 and its social issues program is applied, ensuring it was “contested by the French”.
“The French are against the strong themes of Mr Fillon and Mr Juppé program, so the mobilization is valid to be clear,” said Mr. Martinez on France Inter.
The secretary general of the CGT particularly cited a poll published in the newspaper Libération indicating that 64% of French were against the decline in the retirement age to retire at 65.
“It’ll be trouble especially for employees and that’s what concerns us”
“People today speak more to a rejection of what exists to a perspective” , which “does not mean adherence to the program”, considers Mr. Martinez.
Asked about the programs of the left and right, he felt that “the social and economic issues” is “about the same”.
Asked about the fact that this could “hard for the CGT” in case of the return of the right to power, Mr. Martinez said: “It’s going hard especially for employees and that’s what concerns us” .
