Next national strike in France: 12 October

Don't worry about this, but keep it in mind. Same drill as for the two strikes in September.

Thank for that k2. I had been wondering about the next one, because my parents leave France on the 9th and are flying back to NZ via Perth for my nephew's 21st on 13th.

We've been planning this surprise visit for 12 months, and I was dreading they might get caught up in this strike action.

Thanks for the heads up kerouac2. That's smack dab in the middle of our visit. Hopefully by then we will be aclimatized to the City and be able to manage.

I have train tickets from paris to rennes on the 12th - what are the chances we'll get there? Should I start thinking of different options in case we can't leave paris on the 12th?

Can you tell? Is the general strategy for one strike / month?

Thanks

Yes, Jim, there are demonstrations called for Saturday October 2nd to allow those of us who can't strike to march on that day. The success or failure of those marches will certainly influence the strike day.

Another source of influence will be the outcome of the general strike in Spain on September 29th. Neighboring countries watch each other for inspiration.

I plan to take the SNCF train from Bayeux back to Paris on the 12th. Does this mean the train will definitely not be running then?

A list of the trains running will be published 24 hours before the strike date.
