France -Public transport strike -June 12, 2013

The trade union of CGT and FO in the public transport sector (subway and trains) in the region of Ile-de-France called a strike on 3 June with the objective to denounce the deterioration of the work conditions. According to the trade unions a new protocol for the functions of the subway and train drivers will harden the working conditions. It is considered by the unions as very complex and poorly paid. Less than ten day later, rail workers nationally followed the example of Ile-de-France and went on strike against government plans to split the SNCF in three divisions, which workers fear will be a prelude to the collapse of the public railway system.
