Unions in Frankryk have called for a national railway strike this summer as they demand increased wages, amid rising inflation.

Sud Rail, CGT and CFDT on Friday issued a joint call for industrial action on 6 Julie.

“Along with werkers in France and in Europe, railway workers are sharply hit by exploding inflation; we must act to obtain wage increases,” the unions said in a joint statement.
