RATP strike: normal traffic expected this Thursday, April 4, 2024

RATP STRIKE. While the CGT had called a strike this Thursday, April 4 to demand salary increases and the holding of NAO for the year 2024, traffic will ultimately not be disrupted.

[Updated April 3, 2024 at 3:01 p.m.] 10 days ago, the CGT-RATP, the majority union of the Parisian transport authority, called on RATP staff, of all categories and all services, to strike this Thursday, April 4, 2024, demanding the holding of NAOs (mandatory annual negotiations) for the year 2024 and not satisfied with the salary increases negotiated between other unions and employers. Finally, despite the call for a strike, traffic will be "normal" on the entire network.

“There will be normal traffic on the entire network operated by RATP”, whether in terms of bus, tram, metro or RER traffic, a spokesperson told AFP. The CGT also deplored the fact that the increase of 100 euros gross per month planned for all agents would be implemented "only from January 2025", estimating that "RATP agents need this money now". She demands a “return to the negotiating table”. Furthermore, the CGT-RATP invites the staff of the Paris autonomous transport authority “to gather massively in front of the company’s headquarters at 10:30 a.m. to demand our due and real NAOs”.
