A public sector strike has been called in New Caledonia for Friday next week.
A strike notice has been issued by the sector's union to push for the application of a career structure plan already in place in France.
The new system, known as PPCR, offers a better career management method, as well as a review of the salary scales.
In March, 850 teachers took strike action to push for their inclusion in the scheme.
The union said next week's strike is a warning shot as 2019 promises to be tense.
