Hospital workers in French Polynesia say they will go on strike in a week.
They have issued a strike notice for a number of hospitals in Tahiti, Raiatea and the Marquesas islands after the government failed to meet their demands.
The union representing them says the workers want all provisions of a protocol from last February implemented.
It says eight months later none of the points of the protocol has been respected.
If there is no agreement, the strike will begin in a week.
