For the PCF, a plan which solves nothing and threatens jobs

Translated Saturday 5 September 2015, by Adrian Jordan

For Valérie Goncalves, French Communist Party (PCF) head of energy affairs, “the strategy employed today is not right”. She, with the commission she led, interviewed Areva [1] employee representatives, and considers that “nothing will be solved, not on the part of Areva, because its coffers must be boosted by seven billion (euros) and the government has no intention of doing so before September, nor on the part of EDF [2] which needs to invest large sums, notably for the maintenance of power plants”. With the forecast budget, “above all, it is jobs which will suffer”.
