The CDU labour wing want to defuse the coalition dispute over the planned basic pension with a compromise proposal.

A basic pension without means test and recognition of a possibly existing higher partner’s income would be unfair. “We can’t do that for the basic pension, as it made no difference whether a couple receives a very good and a small pension, or two very small pensions,” said Laumann.
