The call to stop work is launched by three major SNCF unions who are calling for a rapid increase in wages. SNCF railway workers, “faced with growing inflation and the absence of a general increase since 2014”, are called to go on strike on July 6 to demand wage increases, the unions announced on Friday. concern in a joint press release the CGT-Railway, SUD-Rail and the CFDT. Catch-up measures “Railway workers are hard hit” and “suffer a clear and strong decline in their purchasing power”, say the unions. On June 16, all the representative organizations made a “request for immediate consultation” on the question of wages to the president of the SNCF Jean-Pierre Farandou. “The management refused to receive the trade union organizations (…) sending the exchanges at bilateral meetings in progress”, deplores the press release. The railway workers are asking for “measures to catch up with wages for inflation”, but also “a general increase in wages and the revaluation of bonuses” or even “a revaluation of the all allowances, bonuses and indemnities”.
