France: Strike announcement of SNCF railway unions
from April 3 until June 28, 2018


From the 3rd of April until the 28th of June 2018, French trade unions of SNCF railway workers announced a two-day national strike every five days. As a result, train circulations during this period may be severely disrupted. Even on the day after each strike, operations might suffer slight disruptions.

Direct consequences :

  • Sale of train tickets for strike days in April is closed, regardless of the reservation channel.
  • Online booking tools display trains as "full".
  • Since this strike was publicly announced, CWT Customer Service Centers may receive a larger number of calls. Despite the measures put in place to deal with this situation, the average call waiting time may be longer during this period.

Below you will find the provisional schedule of announced strike days:

Strike days are highlighted in yellow. Sales are closed until the 29th of April.
