Event

The Unsa-RATP union has called for a strike in the Paris region on Monday, February 17. The Parisian RATP network, including buses, metros, and RER trains, will notably be affected during the strike action.

Significant service disruptions and delays are to be anticipated on the RATP network. Further information can be found on the RATP website here

Context

Thousands have participated in protests across France since December 2019 to voice their opposition to President Emmanuel Macron's planned pension reform scheme. Subsequent nationwide strikes have caused significant disruptions to all forms of transportation. Strikes may continue for an indefinite period if the government does not abandon its proposed pension reform plan.

Advice

Individuals in Paris are advised to monitor developments to the situation, anticipate significant transportation disruptions, and adhere to all instructions issued by local authorities.
