The new day of mobilization against the pension reform will cause transport disruption on Tuesday, January 31.
The circulation of trains will be “very seriously disturbed”, in particular for regional trains TER and Transilien, and will be “seriously disturbed” for TGVs, the SNCF announced on Sunday.
The railway company plans one out of two TGVs on the east axis, one on two on the southeast, two out of five in the north, one over four on the Atlantic arc and two out of five for the Ouigos.
For regional trains, it provides two TER out of 10 on average.
In Ile-de-France, one train out of three is scheduled for lines A, B, H and U, as well as one train out of four on line K, and one train out of 10 for lines C and D (partly closed), E, J, L, N, P and R.
“A difficult day even very difficult”
Transport Minister Clément Beaune had announced earlier this Sunday a “difficult or even very difficult day” on Tuesday. “So all those who can organize themselves to telecommute, to postpone a trip, it’s better” because “there will be strong disruptions”, he had underlined.
Galvanized by the success of their first mobilization against the pension reform on January 19, the unions called for new massive demonstrations on January 31. The CGT and SUD-Rail railway unions also called for a strike on February 7 and 8, a prelude to a renewable notice “from mid-February”. Right during the winter holidays.
