Pressure continues against the government. FO-Cheminots in turn called on Monday for a "dead day" in transport on February 17, joining the call launched by four RATP unions.
It is next Monday that the National Assembly will begin examining the pension reform bill.
Fifth SNCF union, FO-Cheminots launches "a national call to strike", thus extending outside Ile-de-France the appeal of the Unsa, SUD, FO and Solidaires unions of the RATP, said Philippe Herbeck, secretary general of FO-Cheminots.
"All together to block the economy"
“A dead day in transport with the SNCF-RATP call unit makes sense to remind this government that it is still not! To pension reform, the union said in a statement. FO-Cheminots thus wishes to "reproduce the force of the strike which began on December 5", on the first day of the mobilization against the reform.
"We reaffirm by this initiative that, if street demonstrations are important means of expression and visibility, the tool for victory is indeed the strike all together to block the economy", continues the union, which "Will also engage in the day of interprofessional call of February 20".
Last Thursday, Unsa, the first union at RATP, called for a "black Monday" on February 17 in the metro and RER. The following day, this organization had been joined by three other unions of the management - SUD, FO and Solidaires.
