“To shock because of salaries, not to shock because of knowledge. » Four days after the mobilization of February 1, anger is not abating in the teachers' ranks.
On the contrary, the latter seems to be intensifying and wants to last in time. At an inter-union meeting on Friday, February 2, the teachers' unions decided to continue the movement. And that from this Tuesday, February 6.
In Ain, the CGT SNES FSU and the Court of Education are calling for a meeting in front of the premises of the Academic Inspectorate at 1 p.m.
A towing operation is also planned near Oyonnax, at the Arbez-Carme secondary school, where staff condemn “the decline in resources and the experiment of merging with the Painlevé secondary school”.
In addition to the day of mobilization this Tuesday, the unions are calling for additional actions during the rest of the week. “February 1st was a success with almost 40% of the strikers in the department,” notes Éric Pérocheau, secretary of the FSU SNES department. The idea is to extend and continue to revive what has been started. »
In this context, several towing operations are scheduled to take place across the department over the next three days.
“Keep condemning this reform”
But that's not all: “We invite colleagues to organize informative meetings as soon as possible. They are also invited to participate in board meetings being organized this week to prepare for the next school year and to vote against the allocated funds. We must continue to condemn this reform! »
Wages, working conditions, level groups, etc. Force Ouvrière, a non-signatory to the inter-union strike call, joins the protest. “We did not sign the inter-union communiqué, because Article 2 of educational inclusion is no longer on the list of demands. For us, it is something important, specified Didier Bonneton, departmental secretary of the FO of secondary schools and colleges. But our position is clear: we call for a strike on Tuesday and even after that. »
“We don't want a school of social classification”
Solidarity and: classroom teachers, who could not participate in the strike on February 6 due to administrative reasons. “Since 2008, we have had the obligation to announce our intention to strike in advance,” emphasizes Yoann Robert, department co-secretary of FSU-SNUipp. Organizationally, it was too complicated for us to bounce back from the strike week after week. »
Despite this, the School Teachers' Union wanted to establish a “complementary strategy”, aimed at challenging elected officials. “We have set up an online platform that allows every teacher to challenge their parliamentarians. They must understand that the policy without resources led by Attal and Oudéa-Castéra is leading us straight to the wall. There is an urgent need to put themselves in favor of a school that allows social mobility to be restarted. We do not want a school of social classification, as they are currently organizing. »
