SNCF agents speak with users at the Gare de Lyon in Paris on 3 April 2018, the first day of the railway workers’ strike against the SNCF reform “>
More than one in two French judges that the strike launched at the SNCF is “not justified”. This is shown in an Ifop poll for Le Journal du Dimanche. In other words, it means that 54% of the French are protesting against this strike.
A percentage down from a similar survey a month ago. 58% of French people considered that such a strike was not necessary. It would seem that the protest of the French has grown.
On the other hand, 46% of respondents now believe that this social movement is “justified”. Only 42% supported the process a month ago, an increase of 4 points. This figure remains, however, in the low average of judgments with regard to social movements.
The Ifop survey reports
also that 61% of the French want the government to go “at the end of the reform of the SNCF as it was announced, without yielding to mobilizations and strikes”. They were only 51% to make such a wish a month ago.
