[Mis à jour le 14 février 2024 à 17h36] SNCF controllers are on strike from this Friday, February 16, in the middle of the winter holiday weekend, until Sunday, February 18 inclusive. The CGT and Sud-Rail unions believe that the end-of-crisis agreement negotiated at the end of 2022 is slow to be implemented. If between 70 and 90% strike rate is expected, the management of the railway company assures that it will be able to run “one in two trains” this school holiday weekend for zones A and C, thanks to a controller agent per train instead of two and non-striking executives trained to replace striking agents.

Users are encouraged to postpone their departures free of charge to Thursday February 15 or Monday February 19, 2024, knowing that “300,000 seats on other trains are available on Thursday and Monday, this makes it possible to reposition travelers whose train is canceled “, assures the director of TGV-Intercités Alain Krakovitch.
