A upheaval, yes, but for their good. While the draft law on transformation of the public service was passed on this Monday, for the consideration of members of parliament, the majority seeks to clear landmines in the ground. Evidence that the subject is sensitive, the prime minister himself was held to be reassuring."I measure the key role of the officials," said Edward Philip in an interview with the Figaro . The rapporteur (LREM) of the text to the national Assembly, Emilia Chalas, is, it, insurgent at the microphone of France inter in front of a "civil servant bashing" unbearable. As for Olivier Dussopt, secretary of State in charge of the bill, it provides for several days that there is no question of calling into question the life-long employment, that many officials want this reform and that the government wants above all to win in efficiency and in close proximity to public services... performing certainly, in passing, some savings."a Lot of swank"
The bill, which relates to the 5.5 million officers of the three public functions (State, hospital, region) wants to be a kind of toolbox. In big lines, it plans to facilitate the use of contract workers - already in number of 1 million -to encourage mobility between public and private, the creation of a contractual termination or facilitation of the social dialogue, with an overhaul of the instances.
"This text, this is a lot of pretense to little effect, says Olivier Marleix (LR), nothing responds to the first objective should be the reduction of public expenditure. There are already four exceptions to allow for contracts in the public service, we add three more! And in addition, it is more expensive to use." For his part, mp PS Boris Vallaud, in a column published in the Huffingtonpost, warns: "The risk is double: to multiply the risks of jobs of convenience, at the expense of the jurisdiction, and significantly reduce the career prospects of public servants who have made the choice to engage in favour of the general interest."
To give a pledge to the left, a few adjustments have been made in the committee
The bill, which has sparked the filing of more than 1,000 amendments, has also managed the tour de force to realize the union against him. Last Thursday, the nine representative trade unions of the public service, marched together, something very rare, which offsets a mobilization quite low (108.900 protesters, according to the ministry of the Interior and 250,000 according to the CGT).
also, to give a pledge to the left, a few adjustments have been made in committee. Olivier Dussopt has planned to file an amendment to allow holders of short-term of less than one year, to be paid up to two times the minimum wage, to benefit from a bonus of precariousness, specify The Echoes. What raise the price of these contracts and to avoid that we use too often. Cost of the measure for public finances: between 400 and 600 million euros per year.35 hours for all
The issue of working time should also add an electric touch to the discussion by the vote of a solemn, scheduled for may 28. The bill, but an amendment will state that the agents must perform 35 hours weekly - which is not the case today for the 190,000 of them. If The Republicans ironisent on "a measure to enforce the law Aubry with twenty years of delay", Bercy account above to crop in the workforce. Up to 30,000 jobs could be saved.
Because if they are not included in the draft law presented to members of parliament, the recent announcements of the head of State - abandonment as possible to the target of 120,000 deletions of positions by 2022, and new modes of recruitment to the senior civil service - will glide like a shadow over the next two weeks.Updated Date: 14 May 2019, 00:00
