The SNCF, a French railway company, has proposed a salary increase of 4.6% on average for its employees in 2024. This includes a general increase of 1.8%, as well as a commitment to raising low wages so that none are below the minimum wage. Additionally, all employees will receive a value-sharing bonus of €400. The CFDT-Cheminots and Unsa-Ferroviaire unions have both announced their intention to sign the agreement, with the CFDT-Cheminots indicating that they reached this decision after consulting their members and management structures. However, SUD-Rail has expressed opposition to the agreement and called on SNCF management to reopen negotiations due to what they see as weak proposals. The CGT-Cheminots have described the management’s proposals as “indecent and contemptuous” in light of ongoing salary disputes. Unions have until November 22th to sign the agreement, but without a majority, SNCF may not be able to apply all of it fully. Last year, only the CFDT-Cheminots signed the agreement for 2023 salaries, despite this lack of majority, SNCF applied planned measures anyway.
