While travelers have made arrangements to book their train tickets, many trains have been canceled this week due to the mobilization of railway unions. “In total, around 200,000 passengers are affected by these cancellations, of which there are 800 between Friday and Monday”, indicated our colleagues from BFM Business citing the calculations of the Parisian.

Friday, December 23, the trade unions signed the agreement of the management of the SNCF, put on the table the day before, thus allowing the lifting of the strike notice which hovered over the weekend of the New Year to come. “I salute the spirit of responsibility that prevails this morning at the SNCF in anticipation of the New Year weekend.
