The unions will also meet again from February 1, “to agree on the follow-up to be given” to the social movement.

After the SNCF, the RATP. This Wednesday, the representative organizations of the RATP – the CGT, FO, the Unsa and the CFE-CGC – called on all the employees of the company to go on strike, next January 31, on the occasion of the second major national day of interprofessional mobilization against pension reform.

forwarded to Figarothe joint communiqué of the intersyndicale underlines from the outset “hostilityof the organizations towards the government’s project, and demands itswithdrawal“. “We affirm our determination to build a movement of magnitude with all the workers of the country“, proclaim the four unions, which remain headstrong against the text proposing in particular the abolition of the special regime from which a large part of the agents of the Ile-de-France region benefit.

The day of January 31 must therefore be that of mobilization, call the structures: “all the agents of the company [doivent] express their rejection of this pension counter-reform by participating in the strike and demonstration on Tuesday, January 31“, they believe in the press release. Then, the RATP inter-union will meet “from 1 February to agree on the follow-upto the social movement.

The call for a strike is hardly surprising: on the previous interprofessional day, January 19, traffic at the RATP had already been marked by major disturbances, while many agents pounded the pavement in opposition to the reform. On the next national day, the SNCF unions have already called for people to join the processions, in order to “to raise the balance of power to win the withdrawal” of text.

At the RATP – as at the SNCF – the mobilization could however go beyond this simple call to strike on January 31. On Facebook, the CGT-RATP called on the employees “to participate, from January 23, in all the local initiatives proposed by our organizations“. The national inter-union hopes that actions will multiply in companies, by the end of the month, to maintain pressure on the government.
