France - Public service unions organise over 100 actions - January 21, 2010

The CGT, FSU and Solidaires union organisations have co-ordinated over 100 demonstrations and other actions on 21 January as part of their campaign of opposition to government policies on the public services. Thousands of teachers, civil servants and health workers took part in demonstrations across the country. The latest message to come from the government includes plans for further job cuts across the public services with 34,000 jobs to go in central government alone and cuts also likely in local and regional government and the health service (See also this Collective Bargaining Newsletter Year 2 December 2009).
