At the SNCF

At the SNCF, after a day of strikes on Tuesday on which the four representative unions of the company agreed (CGT Cheminots, Unsa-Ferroviaire, SUD-Rail and CFDT Cheminots), the union front hitherto united will crack Wednesday.

Thus, in Île-de-France, the traffic of the RER lines operated by the SNCF (C, D and E) and that of the suburban trains will remain “disturbed“. For example, only one out of two trains will be required on RER C, two out of five on RER D and two out of three on RER E. As for the main lines, the company plans on average two out of three TGVs, with in the detail two out of three trains to the North, a circulation “almost normal” towards the East, three out of five trains towards the South-East, one out of two trains towards the Atlantic, two out of three Ouigo and three out of five province-province TGVs. SNCF Voyageurs is counting on one in two Intercités and will cancel its night trains. The company also plans to run nearly one in two TERs, with disruptions in all regions.

In refineries

In the refineries, the CGT of TotalEnergies has called for a 48-hour strike from this Tuesday. The movement was shortened by 24 hours, since it is a strike of 72 hours from Monday which was initially planned by the oil branch of the CGT. Sector employees plan a suspension of shipments to fuel depots during these two days, but no stoppage of production at refineries yet.

«There is no shortage of fuelsin the group’s service stations, assured the management of TotalEnergies on Tuesday, as on previous occasions. “Stocks in depots and service stations are at a satisfactory level“, she added.
