Railway workers also on strike in France

Railway workers are also on strike in France: While the fuel shortage in France continues as part of the new labor law protests, open-ended strikes in public transport started in the country. The French National Railways (SNCF) have been on an indefinite strike since last night.
Because of the strike, intercity transportation and some suburban trains interfere with 50. Trains from the strike, Switzerland, Germany, Italy and Spain are also affected.
In a television program he attended yesterday, Philippe Martinez, the largest labor confederation of France, said that the most strikes they have made in the last 3 months against the bill will be experienced this week. RATP, which is responsible for public transportation in Paris and its surroundings, will start an indefinite strike as of 03.00:XNUMX tomorrow night.
The strikes are expected to cut rail transport in half. The French press commented on the strikes as "black week in public transport". Earlier in the week, the French National Pilot Union announced in June that the indefinite strike in the aviation sector was voted on, but did not specify when the strike would begin. Last week, civil aviation unions announced that they would go on a major strike on June 2-5.
It is stated that tourists coming for the European Football Championship, which will start on June 10, will be heavily affected by the strike wave. It is estimated that the strikes and the shortage of gasoline in France, which also opened the tourism season as of June, will seriously trouble the tourists coming to the country for the championship.
Yesterday, the Association of Hotel Management and Industry Professions announced that bookings to Paris this summer fell 20 percent to 50 percent from the previous summer. The labor bill tension between the unions and the government since the end of March has almost paralyzed life in France in the past week. Due to the actions in the refineries, finding gasoline in many cities of the country turned into an ordeal, and vehicle owners formed long queues in front of gas stations.
If the draft bill is approved, the maximum daily working hours of 10 will be increased to 12 hours, employees who want to make changes to the employment contract can be fired, the minimum working time of the employees with part time of 24 hours will be reduced, and less payments can be made in overtime.
Trade unions and workers' organizations say the government should withdraw the bill, otherwise they will not back down. The bill will come to the Senate on 8 June. Unions are planning to put pressure on the government by this time.
