On this question of salaries, teachers believe that it is urgent to open negotiations without delay for improvement improve careers and take general measures for salaries, in particular by revaluing the index point, in a context of collapse of the level of remuneration of public officials.

The mobilization of National Education also aims to protest against the government's reforms, in particular that of the level groups proposed by Gabriel Attal when he proposed was still Minister of Education. This reform has also inspired his slogan for the movement: "No to the clash of knowledge, yes to the clash of wages !".
