A strike in the public service is organized, Thursday in France, against a government reform project, at the call of all representative unions of civil servants.
This day of mobilization comes at a time when the National Assembly is due to begin Monday the examination of a bill “transformation of the public service”.
Trade unions denounce “the very serious scope of the text” for both agents and users.
This is the fourth such strike under the current government. But this is the first time that all the representative unions of civil servants, nine in total (CGT, CFDT, FO, FSU, Solidarity, Unsa, FA-FP, CFE-CGC and CFTC), take part, highlight the media outlets that indicate that more than 100 gatherings are planned throughout France.
The delicate reform of the civil service is one of the major projects of the French government for 2019. Its contours, which cause dissatisfaction with trade unions, mainly focus on the elimination of 120,000 positions by 2022, merit pay, or the increased use of contractors.
At his press conference to exit the great national debate, launched in response to the demands of “yellow vests”, French President Emmanuel Macron had expressed his willingness to abandon the goal of removing 120,000 government positions over the five-year period if it is impossible to reach.
France has about 5.5 million employees in the three public services (state, territorial and hospital).
