France’s labour unions will keep up their fight against a planned rise of the legal retirement age, they said on Wednesday after a meeting with Prime Minister Elisabeth Borne failed to end the gridlock over a widely unpopular pension reform.

“We will not come back to the negotiating table as if nothing had happened”, said Cyril Chabanier, president of the CFTC union, reading out a joint statement after the meeting.
