This Tuesday, the inter-union calls for a 14th day of mobilization against the pension reform. On the eve of the examination of the proposal to repeal the Liot group in the Assembly, the workers' organizations want to believe in a burst of mobilization, which could be the last.

The last of the ders? This is in any case the scenario that is emerging about the 14th day of mobilization against the pension reform that will take place this Tuesday, at the call of the interunion. If the latter wants to believe in a burst of mobilization, she has little illusions about the outcome of a fight that seems almost lost.

On Tuesday, it will probably be the movement's baroud of honor. "We don't have a lot of additional resources on the issue of pensions. It's true, we have to face the facts. But this is not at all the field of the swan of the interunion," says Simon Duteil, general delegate of the union Solidaires.

Article 40 is expected to be used in the Assembly on Thursday

The intelligence forecasts a decrease in mobilization with 400,000 to 600,000 demonstrators according to information from Europe 1. However, strikes will be carried out in several sectors, including electricians and gas workers as well as in rail and air transport, with a third of flights cancelled from Paris-Orly.

This Thursday, the president of the National Assembly, Yaël Braun-Pivet, is expected to use the famous article 40 of the Constitution to block the vote on the repeal of the reform. And thus put a definitive end to the parliamentary sequence, less than three months before the start of the application of the reform, on September 1st.
