Wage increases, reorganization of working hours, job bonuses: the CGT has issued strike notice at RATP to make its demands heard. We take stock.

" On salaries, in 2024 as in 2023, it's not there! " The CGT denounces the poor remuneration of RATP staff, whose salaries are not keeping pace with inflation, according to the union. The union is threatening Jean Castex, President of the Régie Autonome des Transports Parisiens, with a pay rise and better working conditions. The CGT has filed a strike notice, valid from February 5 to September 9, 2024.

Seven months of potential strike action, and guaranteed chaos during the Olympic and Paralympic Games, when 15 million tourists are expected. The CGT is hoping to put pressure on public transport management, and win its case.

More specifically, the union wants " the de-capping of steps, the re-evaluation and widening of the hourly range of the Allocation complémentaire et déplacement, the opening of negotiations on the reduction of working hours on the basis of 32 hours, as well as the integration of the 'prime emploi' into the statutaire ", according to information gathered by BFMTV. The strike is expected to involve all RATP employees.

Should we therefore fear a massive strike in the coming months, and opt for cycling rather than renewing our Navigo pass? It's likely that negotiations will be held beforehand between transport management and the union, to avoid too much disruption to services. We'll have to wait and see how events unfold in the near future.
