RATP strike metro bus RER what traffic this Friday the

STRIKE RATP. While a strike notice has been filed with the RATP for this day of Friday January 13, 2023, no disruption is to be expected in Parisian transport.

[Mis à jour le 13 janvier 2023 à 11h03] The RATP strike initiated by the CGT this Friday, January 13, 2023 is ultimately not followed. Indeed, the other majority unions at the RATP that are FO and Unsa have not called to join the social movement. According to the management of the RATP group, no disruption is to be expected in Parisian public transport (metro, bus, RER or trams).

On this day of the NAO (mandatory annual negotiations), the CGT-RATP is demanding a salary increase of 300 euros per month, or 50 additional index points, taking inflation into account. If the disturbances do not take place in transport, a “big rally” will be held at 2 p.m., in front of the Esterel building in Val-de-Fontenay, in Val-de-Marne (94).

Through a communicated published on January 7, 2023, the CGT-RATP union filed a strike notice for Friday January 13 with the aim of demanding for all agents “a monthly statutory increase of 300 euros, equivalent to 50 index points” by specifying that “the management of the company locks the negotiations on the only question of the Average Remuneration of the Personnel in Place”. “The consequences of inflation will continue to hit agents,” added the CGT-RATP union. “Remember that food prices have increased in one year and on average by 12.1%, energy by 15.1%…”.

In this press release (below), the CGT-RATP also specified calling for “a gathering, with speeches, at the MRF workshops in Fontenay-sous-Bois on Friday January 13, 2023 from 10 a.m.”. Then, we will go to Val-de-Fontenay (catering on site), where the negotiation meeting will take place.

“In 2022, as in 2021 and even the previous years, the company has earned millions of euros in net results, the fruit of our work. Therefore, the part of the added value to be taken into account for our statutory salaries must be more important to better remunerate our work, our qualifications”, estimates the CGT in a letter sent to Jean Castex, CEO of the RATP. RATP agents pointed out that RATP management, headed by former Prime Minister Jean Castex, has “responded mainly with bonuses, most of which are ephemeral”.

On the RATP website, the virtual assistant is categorical about the traffic forecasts in view of the social movement of Friday January 13, 2023: “The announced movement of January 13, 2023 will not have a significant impact on the bus network and the rail network is announced in normal traffic.” You should therefore be able to drive normally this Friday.
