The CFDT and CGT inter-union are preparing a day of strikes and demonstrations on Friday October 13 to demand wage increases.

Strike planned at SNCF

On the rail, if the details of the movements at the SNCF are not expected until Wednesday evening – the striking railway workers must make them known 48 hours before – cancellations and delays are to be expected. Three of the main railway union organizations – the CGT-Cheminots, Sud-Rail and the CFDT-Cheminots – called, in a united leaflet, β€œall railway workers to go on strike and demonstrate on October 13” , demanding wage increases and improved working conditions. Unsa-Ferroviaire subsequently joined this call.

The air would be affected

If you take a plane this Friday, also watch out for delays and possible flight cancellations. The USAC-CGT air traffic controllers union has filed a strike notice, but not the SNCTA (National Union of Air Traffic Controllers), the main union organization of the profession.
