Another day of strike at the RATP. Ile-de-France bus and tram traffic will be “strongly disturbed”Monday, May 23, “with 60% of traffic guaranteed on average”, warns the Paris transport authority. Metros and RERs will not be affected. At this stage, the RATP is planning 3 out of 5 trams on average during peak hours, as well as 2 out of 3 buses, with the interruption of certain lines. More precise information must be communicated on Sunday at 5 p.m.
For more than a year, the RATP has been negotiating with the unions to adapt the working conditions of its 18,000 machinists to the opening up to competition. No agreement having been found, the management announced, at the beginning of May, that it would take unilateral measures. Two additional days of strike are planned for Tuesday and Wednesday at the call of all the unions, after the day of March 25 which had greatly disrupted the bus and tram networks.
