Railway workers on national strike on July 6 for a wage increase

The railwaymen of the SNCF“Faced with rising 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.

“The post-pandemic and geostrategic context, with the war in Ukraine, is causing a price spike unmatched for 40 years”, worry in a joint press release the CGT-Cheminots, SUD-Rail and the CFDT.

The issue of wages

“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 salaries to the president of the SNCF ean-Pierre Farandou.

“The management refused to receive the trade union organizations (…) referring the exchanges to ongoing bilateral meetings”, deplores the press release.

All employees called upon to mobilize

The railway workers are asking for “measures to catch up with salary inflation”, but also “a general increase in salaries and the revaluation of bonuses” or even “a revaluation of all allowances, gratuities and indemnities”.

Unsa-ferroviaire has not yet joined the strike call and will give its response to its participation on June 28th. All the staff of the SNCF​ is affected by this call to stop work.
