On Friday June 24, a strike was announced by the SNCF unions for July 6 throughout the territory. This social movement could well disrupt vacation departures.

It is a social movement that could make a lot of talk. On July 6, SNCF railway workers will be on strike. A situation that divides users, between those who support and those who oppose the movement. However, for the summer of 2022, demand is already very strong and more than half of the TGVs are already full. Railway workers are demanding a pay rise in the face of rising inflation. A bonus of 600 euros was paid to them in 2021.

The purpose of this July 6 strike is to see wages increase, because for eight years, the wages of railway workers have not increased. The SNCF is finding it increasingly difficult to find staff, which leads to regular train cancellations. Usually, on the South-East axis, two trains are canceled by week. Gold lately, more than twenty have not made their journey. The unions also regret having to delay the maintenance work.
