On the RER side, RER C, D, and E are controlled by SNCF and are therefore unaffected by this strike, so only RERA and B should be affected by the disturbance.

Today, management has one month left to confirm the copy and receive us.”

Trade unions have argued that management’s offer to raise salaries is very low, reaching 0.4%, regarding inflation.MeCGT is demanding an annual increase of 3% over the next three years. “Employees’ purchasing power has melted in 10 years,” UNSA-RATP Executive Secretary Arole Lamasse protested to Le Figaro. “Now we can see young new hires leaving after three months to earn more at McDonald’s.” … As part of that, RATP management said the annual negotiations were “finished.” I specified it.
