SNCF STRIKE 6 APRIL. While this Friday, traffic is clearly improving apart from a few RER and Transilien lines, more severe disruptions are expected on Thursday April 6, 2023. Consult the forecast.

[Updated March 31, 2023 at 8:20 a.m.] Despite a renewable strike at the SNCF, against the pension reform, the management of the railway company foresees this Friday a marked improvement in traffic on the main lines, the TER and the Paris suburbs , with almost normal traffic except for lines C, D, L and N of the Transiliens and RER.

The trade unions (CFDT, CGT, FO, CFE-CGC, CFTC, Unsa, Solidaires, FSU and five youth organizations) called, via a press release, for a new day of national strike against the pension reform, Thursday, April 6 2023. The SNCF inter-union (CGT-Cheminots, Unsa-Ferroviaire, SUD-Rail and CFDT-Cheminots) should join the call. Stronger disturbances will be expected for the 11th day of "strike and demonstrations" on the rails of the SNCF, even if for the moment, the disturbances have not yet been announced.

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), which 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.
