A draft agreement had been proposed to the unions on April 4, providing for an increase in working time of 120 hours per year - including the elimination of six days of RTT - in exchange for a salary increase of 2,600 euros gross annually, that is the equivalent of a 14th month.
None of the four representative trade union organizations (CGT, FO, Unsa, CFE-CGC) agreed to sign.
RATP management has therefore taken the unilateral decision that from July 1, 2022, working time will be increased by around twenty hours per year against a gross increase of 460 euros, the maximum that management can impose. unilaterally.
