To date, all contractual agents who are in service in CHUs have not received 5 francs from this premium.

So the officials who had not received premiums are those who were waiting for their first mandate, that is, those who were newly affected and who were not in the files of the balance. Add to that the contractors. After consulting the files in consultation with the unions, 8,954 contract agents were identified. That's what did we have a little dragged. And I can tell you today that we have paid among them 6,913, who received their four months and that the money was fired at the Treasury. So, they will perceive them as and when. »
