Five civil service unions, including the CGT and FO, on Friday launched a joint call to join the strikes and demonstrations scheduled for October 5 to defend jobs and wages.
These organizations "are opposed to the health situation being used by the government and employers to accelerate the questioning of the rights and achievements of employees and young people," they write in a press release.
"The trade unions representing the civil service CGT, FO, FSU, Solidaires and FA-FP call on all civil servants and public officials to stop work on October 5, 2021 and to participate in the mobilizations organized with the sector private, ”write the five unions, which won nearly 60% of the vote in the last professional elections.
Four days before the opening of a conference on salary perspectives bringing together the public service unions and Minister Amélie de Montchalin, the signatories of the call are asking for "the general increase in salaries by the revaluation of the point of index and improvement of the index grid ”.
Unemployment insurance and pension reforms also targeted
They also plead for "the end of job cuts and precarious jobs", as well as "the abandonment of the 3DS bill" (differentiation, decentralization, deconcentration and simplification), which must be examined by the National Assembly in the end of the year.
In addition to the defense of wages and employment, the organizations involved in the October 5 mobilization demand the abandonment of unemployment insurance and pension reforms.
For the moment, the CFDT (2nd) and Unsa (4th) have not joined the call.
“The 1.2 million category C agents, i.e. the lowest salaries in the State, local authorities and hospitals, will receive an increase of 40 euros to 100 euros net per month, depending on their seniority, from January 1, ”Amélie de Montchalin announced last July.
