Macron receives Scholz, unemployment insurance reform and verdict on the Bretigny disaster

Did you miss the news this early morning? We’ve put together a summary to help you see things more clearly.

A meal will make it possible to put oil in the Franco-German engine. Emmanuel Macron and Chancellor Olaf Scholz will really try on Wednesday to relaunch their tandem, burdened by a series of disputes, from energy to defense, against the background of war in Ukraine. During a lunch at the Elysée Palace, the two leaders aim to “strengthen Franco-German cooperation” and to respond to common challenges in a “united and united manner”, the French presidency summarized on Tuesday. An ambition that poorly hides the sometimes gaping differences between the first two European powers, and which led to the postponement for several weeks of a Franco-German ministerial council, the first by Olaf Scholz, scheduled for the same day near Paris.

Passage through the Senate coffers, with a right-wing majority, was particularly fast for unemployment insurance legislation. In fact, the senators only need one day to adopt the text on Tuesday evening at the first reading. They will now try to agree with the deputies on a joint version in a joint committee. This text, carried by Labor Minister Olivier Dussopt, initially plans to extend the current unemployment insurance rules, resulting from a contentious reform of the first five-year Macron term, which expires on November 1. It also triggers the possibility of modulating the unemployment insurance according to the labor market by decree. The left wing, for its part, is against a text which “stigmatizes job seekers and makes them look like profiteers”.

On Wednesday, the court will give its verdict on the railway disaster of Friday 12 July 2013. The court in Evry will announce its verdict against SNCF, SNCF Réseau and a former railway worker, nine years after the derailment of a train in Brétigny-sur-Orge station (Essonne), which had killed seven people and caused hundreds of psychological and/or physical injuries. The eight-week trial, which was held from April 25 to June 17, “was a test for the victims”, according to Me Alexandre Varaut. This Wednesday, the more than 200 registered civil parties therefore hope for “a deliverance”, insisted the lawyer who defends about fifteen.
