Do train strikes really happen every year during the holiday season in France?


Some 200,000 people will be unable to take trains this Christmas weekend in France after ticket inspectors decided to go on a massive strike.

SNCF – the French rail operator – canceled a third of its regular trains as millions began their festive family gatherings.

This caused a lot of anger and frustration, especially on social networks.

Some Twitter users claimed these strikes were happening every year during the holidays in France.

However, the last strike during the Christmas period was in 2019 due to the pension reform proposed by French President Emmanuel Macron.

The one before dates back to 1986 – more than 35 years ago – a very rare situation, indicates the French newspaper La Croix.

Indeed, most of the time, the unions and the SNCF manage to negotiate an agreement just before the holidays.

But where does this impression come from? Since 1947, there has not been a single year without a train strike in France, according to SNCF data.
