Will you have to put a RTT to keep your kids on Monday?
The school day could be disrupted in schools, colleges and high schools: a call to the strike against the job cuts was launched by all the unions representing all the staff of the National Education, a first since 2011.
Demonstrations are planned in the big cities of the territory. In Paris, a procession will start at 2 pm to rally the ministry.
All unions call for strike
The unions of the FSU, CFDT and Unsa federations, in primary (kindergartens and elementary schools) and high school (middle and high schools) called for a strike, in the public and private sectors, to demand the cancellation of these job cuts.
The National Education unions of other federations (CGT, South, FO) have also launched a call to strike, against the delistings of posts but also against the reform of the vocational education, the reform of the high school and more broadly against " the breakdown of the general status of the civil service ". Finally, the Snalc union has joined the two platforms.
"These are two separate calls but in the end, all unions call for a strike," with the common denominator opposition to the removal of posts in the National Education, summarizes Catherine Nave-Bekhti, Secretary-General Sgen-CFDT.
A first since 2011
According to Stéphane Crochet, at the head of the SE-Unsa, this is the first time since 2011 that a call to strike on an education theme brings together all trade union organizations, from kindergarten to high school, in the public and in the private sector .
The 2019 budget, including the National Education component will be discussed in plenary on Tuesday in the National Assembly, plans to remove 2,650 positions in public colleges and high schools, 550 in the private, 400 in the administration. Some 1,800 positions will be created at the elementary level, under the "primary priority" desired by the Minister of National Education, Jean-Michel Blanquer.
