difficult conditions of work, handling of toxic products and especially a project to overhaul pension considered unfair.

"The point of having a special regime is, first, the taking into account of the strenuous working conditions. The agents are faced with schedules of night and work in the underground," explains Bertrand Hammache, secretary general of the CGT in paris, France 3. According to him, the system of pension points "will hurt not only the lengthening of the duration of the work, but also the amount of the contribution".

"There's a lot more reports of strike as usual. There are subway lines that are going to be interrupted during off-peak hours in particular. We have not seen a mobilization of this magnitude for a long time", says the secretary general of the CGT-RATP. The majority trade union of drivers of the RER and metro, Unsa, indicates for its part that the motion to strike will be followed-up to 90% on subways, and 100% on the RER. Some bus lines and subway should be fully closed , and the strike is expected to be completed Saturday morning.

The operation will be repeated on one Saturday per month, for six months to test the effectiveness of the device.
The other dates are Saturday 19 October, 9 November, 18 January, 15 February and 14 march.
