To denounce the schedule changes occurring at the last minute, the Ile-de-France SNCF drivers went on strike this Friday, June 24 at the call of the SUD-rail, CGT, Unsa, CFDT and FO unions.
This movement involves numerous disruptions on the Transilien and RER lines: the SNCF invites travelers “to anticipate or postpone” their movements and “to promote teleworking”.
🔴 Due to a local social movement, train traffic will be disrupted on June 24 on some lines #Transilien.
We invite you to anticipate or postpone your trips and to encourage teleworking.

Thus, one train out of three on average runs on the transilien lines H, J, L and R. Traffic is however normal for the lines E, K, N, P and U.
RER D disrupted
RER D is the most disrupted line. One out of two trains runs during rush hour and one out of three during off-peak hours on the Melun-Paris branches via Combs-la-Ville, Corbeil Essonnes-Paris Gare de Lyon via Évry-Courcouronnes, and Châtelet les Halles towards the north of the line. The interconnection between Gare de Lyon and Gare du Nord is not guaranteed.
RER A users also see their journeys disrupted. At rush hour, three trains out of five run on the Nanterre Préfecture-Cergy le Haut branch and only one train out of three on the Nanterre Préfecture-Poissy branch. The SNCF plans two trains out of three on average for line C of the RER. Traffic is almost normal on RER B, and normal on RER E.
National strike on July 6
To ensure the transport of spectators going to the Stade de France this Friday for the final of the Top 14 rugby, the SNCF has set up a specific system and has reinforced lines B and D of the RER between 7 p.m. and 8:30 p.m. than metros 12 and 13.
If this strike concerns Île-de-France, another movement could affect the journey of all French people during the holiday period. SNCF railway workers called on all staff on Friday to stop work on Wednesday July 6 to demand wages.
