France — 56% against delaying retirement age by one or two years

13 April 2010

A new survey carried out by market research firm TNS-Sofres Logica this month among a representative sample of 1,000 people aged 18 and over on behalf of radio station Europe 1, reveals that 56% of interviewees oppose the government's plans to delay the legal retirement age by one or two years.

38% of interviewees would be prepared to demonstrate against delaying the retirement age or even go on strike. On the other hand, 39% were in favour of the proposals.


The survey is published just before the government, employer organisations and unions start negotiations next Monday about delaying retirement from the current 60 years of age by one or two years.

55% of Socialist Party (opposition) supporters were against delaying retirement compared to 15% of Conservative Party (government) supporters.

52% of blue collar workers would demonstrate in the streets compared to only 31% of white collar workers.
58% of public sector workers would demonstrate in the streets compared to 47% of private sector workers.
