In particular, the government may impose, in very specific cases, a negative Covid screening test when boarding in the direction of French territory and for overseas trips. This travel health certificate could only be activated for international travel in the event of the appearance of a particularly dangerous variant of Covid in a country. Or for trips to overseas communities in the event of a risk of hospital saturation.

• Maintenance of the fuel discount in August

No change to be expected at service stations… for the moment. The government has indeed decided to extend at least until the end of August the fuel discount of 15 to 18 cents (in mainland France).

Concerning the transport fuel allowance (ICT) for large rollers, no more date of entry into force is planned. Bruno Le Maire spoke about the “report” of this measure targeted at high rollers and the working classes. It is criticized by the right which calls for a measure “widespread”. The Minister Delegate in charge of Relations with Parliament Franck Riester affirms on Monday July 25 that the measure “is not buried, it is modified”.

• The pay slip for civil servants revalued

Good news for public service workers. The August pay slip for civil servants will formalize the 3.5% increase in the salaries of 5.7 million public officials, which came into effect on 1er July.

This increase of 3.5%, which constitutes, according to the ministry, the largest percentage increase for thirty-seven years, “is added” to the average increase of 1.5% observed each year on the salaries of civil servants and contractual. This revaluation is however not sufficient for Céline Verzeletti, co-secretary general of the CGT-Public Service.
