  • Nouvelle menace sur le fret ferroviaire via la France: préavis de grève pour le 4 avril
    Lorsque les syndicats de cheminots ont lancé un mot d’ordre de grève pour le jeudi 29 mars 2001, les responsables de la SNCF (chemins de fer français) ont décidé, par anticipation, de commencer à refuser la prise en charge de certains trafics dès le lundi 26 mars. Parallèlement, les mêmes responsables annonçaient la suspension de l’intégralité du trafic fret jusqu’au mercredi 4 avril à 24h00. Les clients du fret ferroviaire sont donc purement et simplement face au vide. De surcroît, un nouveau mot d’ordre de grève a été lancé pour le jeudi 4 avril 2001.
