(Paris) Emmanuel Macron invited French unions to meet him on Tuesday, “whatever the decision of the Constitutional Council” on Friday on the disputed pension reform, the presidency announced.

“It will necessarily be the start of a cycle that the President and the Government will continue in the coming weeks with the social partners. The door of the Élysée will remain open, without preconditions, for this dialogue, “said the entourage of the head of state. The Constitutional Council must announce around 12 p.m. (Eastern time) whether it validates or censures totally or partially the reform project against which the unions have organized numerous demonstrations since January.
