Calls to strike were launched on various SNCF networks, including TGV Sud-Est and Sud-Ouest, for the first weekend of the Christmas holidays, union sources and management said on Tuesday (December 14th).

The unions demand the improvement of working conditions, hiring to compensate for insufficient staff, wage increases or even “a Covid bonus”.

“We are asking for a recognition bonus of 1,000 euros”, argued Tuesday on CNews Fabien Villedieu, head of SUD-Rail.

The controllers and stopover agents (at the station) of the TGV Sud-Ouest are called to strike from Friday to Sunday by the CGT-Cheminots, SUD-Rail, Unsa railway and FO-Cheminots.

For the TGV Sud-Est, SUD-Rail, Unsa railway and FO-Cheminots call for a strike on Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays of the three weekends of the holidays.

Same configuration in Occitanie, where Unsa rail, SUD-Rail and CFDT-Cheminots call the controllers to strike on Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays from next weekend. Identical scenario for the TER of Nouvelle-Aquitaine, where the CFDT, SUD-Rail and Unsa have filed the same type of notice over three days from Friday.

TGV Atlantique employees are called to strike by SUD-Rail “from” Friday.
