SNCF drivers in the Ile-de-France are protesting against the incessant schedule changes that occur a few days or even sometimes the day before they start work due to the numerous works on the lines, according to a union source. There are also wage demands on the grounds of the strike, according to the same source.

During the Champions League final on May 28 at the Stade de France, a strike by RATP drivers on RER B led to a massive transfer of travelers to RER D, a factor then poorly taken into account by the authorities in the organization of arrival flows at the stadium. This time, the strike concerns the SNCF, therefore the RER D but also the northern section of the RER B which leads directly to the Stade de France.
