While the SNCF celebrates his 80 years of existence, its employees are going to live a revolution. Monday, 26 February, the prime minister, Edouard Philippe, announced the end of the status of a railroader for the future recruits of the national society. “To the new generations, to apprentices, to all those who want to engage in the SNCF, warned the prime minister, we say that they will benefit from the working conditions of all the French, those of the labour code. In the future, at a date that will be submitted to the consultation, there will be more recruitment to the status. “
Has the image of Germany, who, in the mid-1990s, has put an end to jobs for life within the Deutsche Bahn, the French government intends to put an end to the ” RH0001 “, the repository of human resources governing the collective relations between the SNCF and its staff. It is a step that many previous governments have dreamed of doing, but never dare to. In 2015, Manuel Valls had created a collective agreement of the branch railway, which governs the organisation of the work (the ” RH00077 “), but was quick to clarify that the status would not be affected.
130 000 employees in over 145 000
Three years later, the status is on the point of falling down, even if the railwaymen existing benefit until their departure from the company. According to the report of Jean-Cyril Spinetta, delivered mid-February to the first minister, the SNCF has approximately 145 000 employees in France, 130 000 in the statute. To obtain this, it is necessary to be recruited in the company public before the age of 30. “By removing the status, one has the impression that this government is seeking more reform iconic as a reform that will alleviate the concerns of the structures and organisation of the company,” says a trade unionist of the CFDT.
