The CGT announces a new strike at the RATP on Thursday

Two months after the last mobilization, the employees are again asking for a revaluation of their index point.

Discontent continues to mount among RATP employees. The group’s CGT has called for a new strike, from Thursday January 12 at 7:30 p.m. to Saturday January 14 at 7 a.m. According to a press release dated January 4 addressed to CEO Jean Castex, it will concern “all staff, of all categories and in all departments».

Above all, the employees are demanding a rise in wages. “Most of the salary measures granted in 2022 do not respond to the dropout due to the freezing of the value of the point for almost more than 10 years at the RATP“, can we read in the press release. The CGT-RATP thus claims “a monthly statutory increase of 300 euros, equivalent to 50 index points».

On December 9, 2022, during the mandatory annual negotiation meeting, RATP management had proposed to retroactively extend the increase in the index point by 2.2% – implemented on 1is July 2022 – to 1is January 2022. With the purchasing power bonus of 500 euros for low wages already paid, the profit-sharing measure of 1,300 euros paid in May and the increase in various bonuses (night work, Sundays, etc.) and allowances ( telework), “these measures represent 200 million euros redistributed to company employees in the form of compensationin 2022, assures the RATP.

This new strike comes two months after the previous one, on November 10. The latter had caused major disruptions in public transport in the Ile-de-France region. For now, the disturbances are not yet known and will be between 24 and 48 hours before the start of the mobilization. Added to this is the announcement of the new pension reform on Tuesday. The unions have already warned France Info that they could launch a hard strike, like in 2019, when they held out for almost two months.
