Railway Strike in France

The ten-week-long rail strike in France did not intend to reconcile with the workers, while the strike could continue in July and August.

Railway workers in France have been on strike for two weeks every five days for ten weeks. The reason why workers are on strike is the reform plan of French President Emmanuel Macron. According to this plan, the state rail company SNCF will be partially privatized up to 2020 and will be adapted to EU-regulated regulations.

EU regulations mean that workers are not only entitled to work-life guarantees, but also to working conditions.

According to the largest trade union confederation of France, Confédération Générale du Travail (CGT), EU regulations will lead to significant gains from the railroad workers' hands, as well as the increase of train ticket prices and loss of public service skills.

According to the Macron government, the SNCF will be en 2020 public ”at 100 and will be transformed into an anomaly company at the same time.


For ten weeks, the Macron administration has still not settled down with strikers. The strike is seriously disrupting France's transport sector, given the simultaneous strike on Air France as well as its out-of-rhythm two days to five days each.

While the government still refuses to agree on the SNCF, the government has rejected the government's 55 offer for the government's wage increase bid.

According to the CGT, strikes in April and 28 are expected to continue until June and may continue in July and August.

The next 48 hourly strike of railroad workers will begin tomorrow. Although strike 5 48 per day in real terms, it is paralyzing the transportation significantly.
