Asked about the demands of reformist unions (CFDT, CFE-CGC, CFTC, UNSA), which require the removal of the article on the capping of benefits prud’homales when unfair dismissal and a stricter definition of economic layoffs s Mr. Valls ensures that “these two points will, of course, be improved.” The original text states that the damages do not exceed fifteen months salary depending on seniority. Practice is one month’s salary per year of service. On this point, “adaptations may be possible without jeopardizing [scales]. We will discuss” says Valls. The presentation of the bill in the cabinet has been postponed for two weeks to 24 March, to try to find a compromise, he recalls:

” We take two more weeks because my method is dialogue. I want to give credibility to this flexicurity in French by giving new rights to employees. “

Challenging the idea to push through the bill, Mr. Valls claims to have ” never mentioned the idea to implement the 49-3 “ and nuance previous statements of the minister of labor, Myriam El Khomri. One day after submitting the project to the State Council, it was suggested that it did not exclude the use of this procedure, saying it would take Manuel Valls and “responsibilities” facing a parliamentary debate “very nourished.”

70% of the French opposed the text

“Our responsibility is to complete the text with the necessary amendments. Me, I want to convince socialists, radical left, environmentalists approve this law, but I want the law also reflects the agreement of all those who want to reform the country, “ continues Prime Minister in the columns of JDD . “We need to reform the labor law as our neighbors did,” he insists. At fourteen months of the presidential election, Mr. Valls does not intend to “one second to immobility. “

As for the possibility of a primary left for the 2017 presidential election, he said:

” A aution! This debate on the primary, I am following with interest but, if it is to attack the legitimacy of the president and institutions, so I do not agree!
