The strike at the SNCF is “not justified” for 54% of French
Two TGV, April 10, 2018 in Paris
More than one in two French people (54%) think that the strike launched at the SNCF to protest the reform of the railway is “not justified”, according to an Ifop survey for Le Journal du Dimanche.
This percentage is down 4 points compared to a similar survey conducted a month ago, 58% of the French having considered such a strike unjustified.
Conversely, 46% of respondents now consider “justified” this social movement, against 42% a month ago, an increase of 4 points.
However, 61% of French people want the government to go “at the end of the reform of the SNCF as it was announced, without yielding to mobilisations and strikes”, whereas they were only 51% to issue such wish a month ago.
This survey was conducted online from April 12 to 13 in a representative sample of 956 people representative of the French population aged 18 and over according to the quota method.
