A few days before the closing of the Ségur de la Santé, caregivers are demonstrating on Tuesday June 30 in dozens of cities to demand a better increase in their salaries.
Health personnel are always mobilized. Several calls to demonstrate on Tuesday June 30 have been launched all over France. This new mobilization intends to respond to the declarations of the Minister of Health. Olivier Véran has just proposed an envelope of 300 million euros to increase the salaries of hospital doctors. A sum deemed very insufficient by the representative organizations which claim seven billion euros.
The unions are based on the announcements of the Ségur de la santé. Non-medical personnel have indeed received a promise of six billion euros. They are however much more numerous: 1.2 million employees in the public hospital service against less than 100,000 for practitioners. A new meeting with the minister is scheduled for Thursday. The conclusions of the Ségur de la santé must be made no later than mid-July.
