Many disruptions are expected Wednesday, December 7 on the SNCF network. A strike call was launched on the initiative of the CGT-Cheminots, SUD-Rail and the CFDT-Cheminots, closely followed by all the staff of the public group in order to influence the mandatory annual negotiations (NAO) which open that day.
Should free tickets for railway workers be limited?
The social movement planned for Wednesday will therefore slow down the circulation of trains throughout the territory. TER and TGV trains will be impacted, as will some Transilien lines in Ile-de-France.

The SNCF also indicates that the TER departing from Paris to Montereau, from 5:12 p.m., 6:12 p.m. and 7:46 p.m. will be canceled. In the opposite direction, Montereau to Paris, the 1:16 p.m. and 3:15 p.m. trains will not run on Wednesday.
The disrupted TGV network
Same forecasts for the TGVs on the Paris-Lyon and south of Bordeaux lines as well as on the Paris-Clermont and Lyon-Nantes Intercités, on which the SNCF foresees major disruptions.
The rail transport company indicates on its website that for TGV Inoui journeys, travelers will receive information concerning whether or not to maintain their journey by text message or email.
The subject of this strike is the revaluation of wages for the year 2023 while inflation reached 6.2% over one year in November and the public group is facing the explosion of energy costs, while being forced to limit the increase in ticket prices. SUD-Rail therefore asks for an additional 400 euros gross per month for everyone, when Unsa wants a 5% increase in wages.
