"As usual, that will not change anything": the blues of teachers in Val-de-Marne, on the eve of a strike


Before the demonstration for more personnel and health security, in front of the Ministry of National Education, the unions of profe

“We were 105 last week, we are 60 now.

»The Zoom videoconferencing counter does not deceive.

The teacher strike scheduled for Thursday before the Ministry of National Education motivates less in Val-de-Marne, and puts the union of unions to the test.

All those present this Wednesday during a final general assembly (Snuipp-FSU 94, SNUDI-FO 94, SUD 94 and CGT 94) demanded the same changes: the launch of vaccination and more replacements.

All the more so in this department where the mobilizations are multiple.

Petition from parents at the Barbusse school in Alfortville, occupation a few days ago at Hautes-Bruyères in Villejuif, or the concern in many schools in Arcueil, devoid of teachers: in Jean-Macé, a CE1 class only had two days of teaching in two months.

In Bonneuil, elected officials and parents must meet this Thursday morning, to "demand an emergency plan".

As of April 26, at least ten teachers would go missing every week.

“More than 2,000 students cannot have class because there are not enough teachers, blows Thierry Audin, deputy departmental secretary of SNUDI-FO 94. We must target the person responsible for this school chaos: Jean- Michel Blanquer.

Teachers are not responsible for the anger of parents.

The only way to solve this problem is to mobilize.


" It's no use "

Except that the union seems to be fracturing a few hours before the rally.

While some congratulate themselves on having succeeded in building a mobilization despite a complicated context, others criticize the weakness of the movement.

"We must not say that there is nothing, there is a beginning, launches a representative.

We did well to have called for a strike.

We have already been able to obtain small things like half-gauges in high schools.

We have to keep up the pressure, and see that we are moving forward.


"It is useless, we will be received by underlings, retorts a teacher.

We have to mount a real movement.

What we managed to put together for tomorrow is business as usual, it won't change anything.

Among the demonstrators angry at the progress of the project, two arguments emerge.

“It was not built, we dropped the piece, plague a representative.

Some say that we could not continue during the holidays… People were ready to go on strike, so why was there no mobilization?

"" My arms are falling out of me, a teacher replies.

If we had called for a renewable strike, would everyone have followed us?


"I am one of those who say that we are fed up, that we do not care about us," confides this other professor.

I am ready to go on strike, but I wonder.

Like many of his colleagues.
