An inter-union began on Wednesday, November 24 in French Polynesia, a general strike against the vaccine obligation and for the introduction of social anti-Covid measures. The movement mobilizes little in the public service: less than 1% of Polynesian education and administration employees have gone on strike. It is followed more in companies that present internal claims. The telephone operator Vini, for example, had 38% of strikers on Wednesday. Domestic air traffic is disrupted by the strike by airport firefighters. Thus no plane was able to land or take off from the island of Raiatea.

Four local unions – out of the five in French Polynesia – notably contest the law on compulsory vaccination, voted in August by the assembly of French Polynesia. According to the text, all Polynesians who exercise a profession in contact with the public must be vaccinated on December 23. Currently, less than 58% of Polynesians are vaccinated, despite a strong wave of the Delta variant in August and September, which killed more than 500 people out of 280,000 inhabitants.

The unions also want a 4% increase in the minimum wage. The government has said it is ready to increase it by 2% and one point more in a few months. The gross minimum wage is 1,281 euros in Polynesia, where the cost of living is higher than in France. The inter-union is also calling for the creation of a fund to help employees who have lost their jobs, because there is no unemployment fund in this autonomous overseas community.
