The CGT unions have demanded a demonstration departure from the workplace in response to a collision of trains in eastern France on Wednesday, with 11 people injured. The trade union Laurent Brun said it was "the last straw" and that the motorists did not want to die or "be responsible for the death of the passengers."
Problems also affected the connections to Paris airports. Several TGV high-speed trains did not come out. last year. Drivers also refused to change pensions from 52 to 62 years. Furthermore, SCNF employees were concerned that Macron wanted to open the market to competition in line with the European Union's liberalization efforts and therefore sought to increase the competitiveness of the state carrier.
