Industrial Action in France -Eurostar International Ltd

To All Eurostar International Members

Dear Colleague,

Industrial Action in France -Eurostar International Ltd

It has been bought to my attention by our French sister union, the CGT, that they are taking industrial action in the coming months over the French Government’s plans to privatise the State Railway (SNCF) and alter the terms and condition of staff, CGT members.

Below is a schedule of upcoming strikes and you will see that these are quite numerous.

The RMT has been told that Eurostar International are attempting to induce members to work in France at Le Landy depot which could have a negative affect on the strike action being called by our fellow Trade Union members.

Therefore, I would ask that members only work to their terms and conditions and do not volunteer for any extra duties that could undermine the strikes.

I am sure that you would also like to share your good wishes and solidarity with our fellow workers and I shall be passing these on to the CTG.

Yours sincerely,


Mick Cash
General Secretary
