An angry wind blows on the Congress of the CFDT. The plant must now discuss the pension reform and the temptation monte close the door to any new increase in the duration of contribution, but defended, conditional, Confederal branch in a resolution that will be put to a vote.
A real dilemma. The activists do not want to give the impression to disavow François Chérèque: on the contrary, standing the cédétiste leader has still been Ovation yesterday and its activity report voted to 86.8, an all-time record (13 points more than in 2006). But many believe the time has come to serve their exasperation with the Government. The sense of "betrayal" born of failure to comply with certain commitments in 2003, the arduous nature, complements of "provocation" with the likely rise in the contributions by civil servants. It is a clearly marked time by the challenge Convention.
Aware of the concerns
Advocates of a still more net failover are probably minority, but concern grew up at the top on the outcome of the vote, while the floor is free in the corridors. "The Government expects that a Union opens the door to funnel." "Do not do this error", said an activist of the Vosges. For a fellow of the agri-food, "accepting anything, we're going to take a setback in professional elections, as it waits FO." "The power we component since the beginning, judge a third, a teacher. It is afraid to have as in 2003. "Tuesday, the rostrum, Thierry Garrido (Hautes-Pyrénées) had invited François Chérèque to put a candle to heavy"if it is a miracle for pensions", while Didier Zint (metallurgy, Lorraine) warned that"it is not acceptable to increase the duration of contributions without knowing the terms of the sharing of life expectancy. "
Aware of the "worries about the approach of the CFDT", François Chérèque applied, yesterday, in framing the debate. No, he said, the plant does not "fall into a trap": "We are not in the position of negotiation of counterparties to a reform that we are fighting." ... What we want to decide today is an alternative draft, not a complement or an adaptation of the governmental project. "Although recall allowed by the troops, invited to" do not fall into the control panel: doling out ads designed to paralyze our decisions. " The best way to be strong face to the Government, is to decide independently. ... It is not enough to oppose. "Everyone expects the CFDT to make proposals, without this it would more be the CFDT". Lawrence Berger, rapporteur for the draft resolution, is abundant: "Not cede to the epidermal reaction." We will be stronger by advancing serious counter-proposals. "He is expected to"heated"discussions but considers that"internal cohesion is strong enough for the Central kind not divided ".
In fact, for François Chérèque, the main Spades finally arrived there or expected it not. Yesterday, Edmond Mayor, one of the CFDT from 1971 to 1988, expressed reservations on the opposition of the plant at the end of retirement at age 60, the finding too firm and a little easy: "I would have preferred an expression of type"the conditions are not met"or"the time has not yet come"", he explained, pointing that "the role of a trade union leader".", it is" his organization and minds. Minds that are are also heated yesterday on the reform of the State: Congress voted an amendment against the direction to harden the position of the CFDT on the evolution of the numbers of officials.
