The federation of public services of the CRT persists and signs. It has filed a notice of strike current from 7 to 31 January, after having done the same between the 8 and the 31 December last year. To file a notice does not mean that action will take place but opens up the possibility. "It is a framework that will enable our local teams to put in action. There are projects in the territories," explains Baptiste Talbot, secretary-general of the federation.
To the CGT federation of public services is comprised primarily of local government officials (municipalities, departments, regions). A number of its activists are also of the "yellow vests".

Or even "we condemn the fierce repression that aimed to put an end to the expression of grievances".

It is one of the peculiarities of the CGT to have several voices in the civil servants...

More than the public service reform (increased use of contract workers, merit pay, etc...) that should be presented in February, these are the issues of purchasing power and the recognition that have intrigued the officials.
"But it is imperative that, in the current period, we were still discussing the form of the mobilizations," stresses Mylène Jacquot , of the CFDT public service. Because the traditional events, organised by the trade unions of officials in the past year, with their estimated 150,000 to 300,000 people mobilized in the quiet, did not move the government.
In the three public functions (State, hospital and territorial), the CGT is the first union, in front of the CFDT and FO. A podium place confirmed in the elections of 6 December last.Updated Date: 09 January 2019, 00:00
