(29 June 2020) The French unions continue the mobilization to get better pay and conditions for all health and social services workers both in the public and private sectors. Strikes and demonstrations are foreseen for 30 June. The unions are joined by the trade unions in the private sector who have similar demands. Millions of workers are seeking a pay increase, investment in their services to deliver quality, more staff and a better recognition and valuation of their work. Applause is good, but not enough. After years of austerity changes and real improvements are needed.
EPSU has sent a message of solidarity.
