France -National rail strike over broken promises -December 12, 2013

Rail unions went on strike on 12 December, saying the minister for transport has broken promises made last year. In October 2012, the minister promised to prevent the fragmentation of the network, to ensure that railways are financially viable, and to improve freight services. Unions, however, say national rail company SNCF is already implementing reforms ahead of a parliamentary debate about its future that will be held in the beginning of 2014.
