The curtains of a large part of the country’s pharmacies will be lowered this Thursday, May 30, 2024. The profession goes on strike. The unions are announcing a very significant mobilization. In Vaucluse, the Departmental Union of Pharmacy Unions provides that 99% of the department’s 200 pharmacies are following suit. Shortages of medicines, opening to competition, inflation, professionals have been accumulating problems in recent years.

Multiple demands
