Four of the nine civil service unions, CGT, FSU, FA-FP and Solidaires are calling for a national day of action this Tuesday across France.
According to Solidaires, strike notices have been filed in the public service (State, territorial, hospital) and more than 80 rallies are planned throughout the territory.
A demonstration is scheduled for noon in front of the Ministry of the Economy in Paris.
The unions denounce the freezing of the index point used to calculate the salaries of agents, even if a meeting on this issue is scheduled for early July between the government and the unions.
The index point has been frozen since 2010, with the exception of 2016 when it was revalued by 1.2%.
They are calling for an increase in wages.
"It is urgent to make our demands heard, in particular on purchasing power when the agents were on the front line, in difficult conditions, throughout the health crisis", explained Gaëlle Martinez of Solidaires.

Health workers should be on duty during the day.
For the unions, if the Ségur de la santé distributed 8.2 billion euros to revalue their salaries last summer, the caregivers who were on the front line during the crisis want an additional boost in addition to the general increase of 183 euros net per month granted to employees of hospitals and nursing homes, both public and private.
For the number one of the CGT-Health Mireille Stivala, "without real upgrading, we will have a recruitment problem in the coming months because professionals are already fleeing the public hospital", she explains, adding that part of staff is looking to retrain.
