The unions have promised to keep up the pressure on another day of protest against the pension reform on Friday January 24. But should we expect a dark day?
A new day of demonstrations and disturbances is scheduled for Friday, January 24, the day on which the pension reform is presented to the Council of Ministers. The disturbances should remain very far from those recorded at the height of the strike. Normal traffic is expected on the main lines. TER should be the most disturbed with 7 out of 10 trains in circulation. In comparison, there were only 2 out of 10 on December 5, 2019, on the first day of the mobilization. “It is in Paris that it will be the most difficult to travel with the vast majority of metros announced as very disturbed, but without any line closure.“, Specifies Viktor Frédéric.
Mobilization of teachers
Strong mobilization is expected from teachers. “The unions announce at the national level 40% of strikers in the primary education. A fairly significant mobilization, but with relatively few school closures, because in the end, few establishments should show 100% strikers“, Indicates the journalist.
