SNCF STRIKE. The mobilization against the pension reform continues at the SNCF. If traffic has improved on the main lines, the TERs and the Paris suburbs since Wednesday March 29, what will happen on April 6?
[Updated March 29, 2023 at 12:15 p.m.] This Wednesday, March 29, on the 23rd day of a renewable strike against the pension reform, traffic is improving on all SNCF lines: expect 4 TGV out of 5, 2 Intercités on 3 and 3 TER on 4 on average at the national level. In the Paris region, traffic also remains disrupted on the RER and Transiliens, lines C, D, L and R remaining the most disrupted with 2 out of 3 trains.
The railway unions launched a renewable strike on March 7 which seems to be continuing, even if the intensity of the disturbances varies from day to day. If traffic improves on Wednesday, stronger disruptions are expected for the 11th day of "strike and demonstrations" scheduled for Thursday, April 6, 2023 by the inter-union. For the moment, the disturbances have not yet been announced and will be at least Tuesday, April 4.
The inter-union called Tuesday March 28 for an 11th day of "strike and demonstrations" Thursday April 6. "The lack of response from the executive leads to a situation of tension" launched the unions. The SNCF unions (CGT-Cheminots, Unsa-Ferroviaire, SUD-Rail and CFDT-Cheminots), who have been on renewable strike since March 7, will they propose to SNCF agents to amplify the mobilization April 6? The answer is currently pending.
