"À nous de vous faire préférer le train!"
"Avec le SNCF, tout est possible"
--Former ad slogans of the SNCF (French national trains), each in turn quickly dropped
Hope you're not traveling through Paris CDG airport this Saturday, 2 August. Five Air France unions will be on strike that day at the airport. Passengers must suffer! Not coincidentally, this is one of the biggest travel days of the year.
Sud-Rail union members of the SNCF (French national trains, toujours eux), had the nerve to ask for a special vacation for the end of the strike because the strike was so stressful for them. The direction refused this astonishing demand.
Post office workers in Aubigny-sur-Nère, Argent-sur-Sauldre and La Chapelle-d'Angillon, on strike for the 39th day
Interesting article in Rue89: the Sud-PTT union has proclaimed a strike warning (préavis de grève) every weekend for five years.
New information being released about the liberation of Paris is showing that black and colonial soldiers who had fought in Normandy were deliberately prevented from marching through Paris in the victory parade with the newly arrived Allies.
