Public sector unions mobilise over jobs and pay

France France
Public sector federations called a national day of action on 15 May including strikes and demonstrations to protest against the government's continuing pay freeze and other austerity measures. The unions continue to call for major reforms of public sector pay and are angry that the government plans to freeze the index on which public sector pay is based until 2017. The unions' demands include better conditions for contractual workers, equal pay for men and women and action on mobility and career development. EPSU sent a solidarity message.
