French unions expect the protests against pension reform involving two million people


PARIS (MEDIAFAX) - France on Tuesday waiting for the strike and protests against planned pension reform. Trade unionists are hoping to issue to the streets up to two million disgruntled Frenchmen who do not like moving the retirement age from 60 to 62 years, Reuters and the French dailies Le Monde and Le Figaro.

The strike came on Monday as the first teachers. According to the newspaper Le Figaro in it involved only 5.6 percent of teachers of elementary and secondary schools. On Tuesday, when the pension reform proposal will be discussed in the National Assembly, should the strike involved more dissatisfied teachers who are protesting against redundancies. The unions calculate that the protest should add up to 62 percent from the first grade teacher schools.The Ministry provides for the participation at around 31.4 percent.

Tuesday's strike should have an impact mainly on transportation in the country. Will be most affected by rail and suburban services in the region around Paris. In the capital of the strike will affect the metro or bus. International links with France should not be disturbed. The French Civil Aviation Administration (DGAC) is expected to be canceled around 25 percent of flights from Paris airports Roissy and Orly.

Strikes and demonstrations are unlikely to have a big impact on the commitment of President Nicolas Sarkozy, which provided pension reform as a priority of his government. The government argues that it is precisely this reform is crucial in the fight against high public debt and in order to maintain the country's highest rating "AAA".According to Reuters, the government resolved on its intention to increase the retirement age, but is willing to negotiate an earlier retirement for people who have physically demanding jobs or for people who started working at an early age.

Analysts believe that although trade unions mobilized a large section of society, so they fail to establish long-term protest movement that could force the government to change attitudes. Reuters said that the country's mood has changed, because the French are aware of the need to face the challenges of aging populations and high public debt.
