Let them take place on best possible is also the wish expressed this Sunday on BFMTV by Philippe Martinez.
The secretary general of the CGT was questioned to find out if he was calling for the organization of the so-called specialty tests to be disrupted while the distrust of the government and its pension reform does not fall. Especially since this Monday marks a decisive day with the vote in parliament of two motions of censure.

In the event of a problem in public transport, the candidates have one hour to present themselves for the test.
Laurent Berger would like this scenario not to occur. In Releasethe general secretary of the CFDT is formal: “ we don’t get in the way “.
