The General Confederation of Labor (CGT) union called for a general and nationwide strike to take place on Tuesday, December 18. Employees of the SNCF (national rail operator) and the RATP (Paris' public transport operator), are likely to join the movement. Associated delays and cancelations are expected on transportation services nationwide if the strike goes ahead as planned, notably in the capital Paris. Related protests cannot be ruled out.
Related CGT protests were held nationwide, notably on December 14, to protest falling purchasing power and perceived inadequate pensions and social protections.
Individuals in France are advised to confirm rail timetables and reservations, allow for additional time to reach their destinations, and to avoid all protests as a precaution.
