Support for rail strikes dwindling

LanguedocLiving, Jun 22

Support for the SNCF strike has fallen to its lowest level since the action began, according to official figures.

The number of SNCF staff who took part in the latest strike on Friday, dwindled to less than 10% of the workforce.

Even among drivers, where backing for the dispute has traditionally been strongest, support is waning. Friday's walkout was heeded by less than 38% of SNCF's drivers, the lowest level since the current wave of protests began. Just 14% of signal operators and less than 32% of conductors are also taking part in the day's strike action.

This is the 17th set of 18 two-day strikes in protest at planned government reforms of SNCF.
