Newsletter #124 – Teleworking and transport, Reform retirement impact, CSE June in brief, Discovery membership

The whole CFDT team wishes you a very good summer vacation. Even during this summer break, the team remains mobilized to inform you and defend your individual and collective interests.

Teleworking and transport allowances

In our previous newsletters, we informed you about the progress of the negotiations on telework and mobility allowances. To date, we have no more information to share since, at the Corporate level, the terms of teleworking are questioned. The general principle would be to have employees return to the site on a basis of at least 3 days. 

Their arguments are:

  • Priority to Business 
  • Maintain team cohesion through face-to-face 
  • Accompany newcomers, trainees or apprentices 

The Management Team France is waiting for its directives from Madrid and will come back to us on the evolution of teleworking. Management’s observation is that teleworking is appropriate for some,  but some changes could be made more to respond to individual constraints, without affecting the workforce collectively

We are aware of your concerns following the rumors or even the announcements (anticipated or not) made by certain managers.

In any case, the CFDT will do its best to keep the current terms of teleworking and the flexibility that we enjoy today in France (detail Teleworking). As soon as we have more information we will share the details with you.

Do not hesitate, effective today, to share your ideas and wishes on the subject. We will take these into account during our discussions with management. 

The impacts of the retirement reform

In Summary :  

    • New legal age of 64 for anyone born from 1968 onwards 
    • 172 quarters for anyone born from 1965 onwards
    • Long career with 4 age brackets instead of 2, for those having accumulated at least 5 trimesters at the age of the bracket  
  • The generation-end-of-career agreement signed in 2019 remains valid, if you are 4 years before your full-rate retirement (see your new estimate under 
    • You have the possibility of taking an enhanced part-time job
      • 80% paid at 90% 
      • 60% paid at 75% 
      • 50% paid at 70% 

Note: You can change the % only if you reduce your working time

    • A repurchase of 4 quarters by Amadeus is possible, out of the 12 provided for by French law. More information on the government website Repurchase of quarters 
    • Training up to 1 000 € financed by Amadeus:
      • 5 days maximum
      • unrelated to Amadeus businesses
      • Without registration in the Company’s Skills Development Plan
    • Have the last 2 months paid and not worked, if you give 5 months of  warning before the date of your retirement. 

To be able to benefit from it, you must agree to retire on the date of your full rate

  • Following the Collective Agreement Break in 2020, there are still 75 people who are still in early retirement. The impact the reform has on their retirement date is increasing (between 3 to 12 months). As a result, Management has opened negotiations with the unions. 

If you are concerned, do not hesitate to contact us so that we can inform you individually.   


If you want to know more about this system that Amadeus has implemented in 2019 and 2020, do not hesitate to let us know.
