This second part of labour market reforms must complement overall investment plan for government training presented by Prime Minister on 25 September, amounting to EUR 15 billion over five years. But inability to resort to orders this time could complicate future negotiations with social partners, while executive hopes to present its bill to Parliament in spring for adoption next summer.
For moment, executive remains elusive on content of reform of learning, contenting itself with global formulas. As for reform of vocational training, a thorny subject to negotiate with trade unions, it must go in direction of "greater transparency, greater efficiency and simplicity".
The presidential deliberate speech was scrambled Wednesday by a particular local case, that of employees of company GM & S. The head of State did not want to take advantage of his visit to Egletons to meet workers of this automotive supplier, second private employer of Creuse, placed in judicial liquidation in June and resumed in September by group GMD, but with only 120 jobs kept on 277.Demonstration of GM & S
On Wednesday, a hundred people showed up in Egletons, behind banners of unsubmitted France and CGT. Supported by several mayors of neighboring communes in front row with ir tricoloured scarves, mini-procession was kept away from presidential visit by an impressive order service.

Visiting a class of apprentices with Alain Rousset, president of New Aquitaine, who complains about not finding candidates for jobs in a foundry company in region, Emmanuel Macron replies: There are some, instead of screwing The brol, y'd better go look where y could get places. A sentence which, by its tone, can recall release of head of State on " loafers", and whose entourage on spot hastened to clarify that he "did not refer to demonstrators of GM & S".
But a few hours later, taking advantage of a new round table with apprentices, this time Emmanuel Macron referred to case of automotive supplier to illustrate his policy of "liberation" and "protection" of employment. "Protecting is not telling people that whatever happens, we are going to protect ir jobs." We know here situation of GM & S, re are situations where we cannot protect all jobs.
