Bad news for All Saints holidaymakers.
The drivers of the TGV Atlantique, already on strike this weekend for the start of the holidays, are again called to mobilize next weekend by the CGT-railway unions, SUD-rail and CFDT-railway workers.
The movement is planned
"over the period from Friday October 29 at 12 noon to Monday November 1 at 12 noon"
, specifies a leaflet.
How the TGV transformed France
The three employee representative organizations have filed an unlimited unit strike notice, allowing strikes every week from Friday at noon until Monday at noon. Limited to the TGV Atlantique axis, this new social movement concerns the TGV Inoui and Ouigo from and to Brittany, Pays de la Loire, Center-Val de Loire, New Aquitaine and Toulouse.
The first strike period, this weekend, led to the cancellation by SNCF of one TGV Atlantique out of ten on Friday, two out of ten trains on Saturday and one out of three on Sunday.
Traffic should return to
Monday, SNCF said.
The transport plan for the other TGV axes of the rail group was not affected by the strike.
Customers affected by the cancellations had been informed by SNCF and could be reimbursed or exchanged their ticket free of charge.
Ouigo versus inOui: what real differences for passengers?
To justify this new social movement, the trade unions refer to the
of the negotiations carried out in recent days with the management on working conditions and remuneration.
The increase in premiums
"would be a first step taken to finally show a desire for appeasement on the part of the management"
, notes the unitary leaflet of the unions.
SNCF has not yet published its traffic forecasts from Friday, October 29.
