A RATP strike begins on Monday, with slow traffic on the bus and tram network in Île-de-France.

The group starts a social movement to demand an agreement to adapt their working conditions for machinists and denounce the arduous nature of the job.

The CGT explained itself at the microphone of Europe 10

A day of galley is announced in the Ile-de-France public transport.

The RATP begins a strike on Monday, which should last until Wednesday, May 25.

Buses and trams will be idling.

Plan on average 3 trams out of 5, 2 buses out of 3 with the interruption of certain lines.

However, the metros and RER will not be affected.

Why this social movement?

The unions and the management failed to reach an agreement to adapt the working conditions of the machinists to the opening up to competition.

A question of "difficulty"

"The RATP takes responsibility for anticipating this break in our working conditions: reducing costs, increasing productivity. The agents do not accept", confides to our microphone Cemil Kaygisiz of the CGT RATP Bus.

"It's already one of the most difficult jobs at the RATP. And so, by doing this, they will add difficulty." 

As a reminder, the RATP "mobilizes all of its distribution channels in order to give, in real time, the most precise information possible to travelers", can we read in a press release.
