Several unions in French Polynesia have issued a strike notice in a bid to force the government to abandon its pension reform plan.
They say the general strike will begin on Wednesday if no agreement has been reached by then.
Long discussions at the presidency yesterday failed to come to an accord.
In March, the government led by Edouard Fritch withdrew its reform plans when several demonstrators forced their way into the territorial assembly.
This coincided with a mass rally in Papeete attended by an estimated 4,000 people on the third day of a general strike.
Mr Fritch has said the reforms are needed to avoid bankrupting the entire system within a couple of years.
