Vive la France, Vive la Grève

Without getting embroiled in the politics, this is a list of strikes planned for the coming weeks. Check, double check and even triple check travel plans as strikes can come at any time, causing chaos for travellers.

General Strike – Thursday 20th February

Strikes continue from the original action organised on the 5th December against the proposed retirement reforms.

Although it is still too early to have a clear indication of the industries joining the action, it will most likely be the same as those who took part in the protests of Thursday 6th February.

That means…

Widespread disruption to be expected in major cities and across national transport links. You can check which trains will be running on the SNCF website here.

Air travel is also likely to be affected although the company should contact you directly if your flight is cancelled or delayed.

Schools and other public services may also join the action.
