What does the company say about the subway strike?
For its part, the Emova company stated that it “regrets that these union measures directly harm users, in a very sensitive time zone in which the Subway is used mostly to commute to their respective jobs or educational activities”.
In a statement, the firm indicated that “the increase in the amount of francs sought as proposed by the union, maintaining the current 6-hour daily workday would imply a decrease from 36 to 30 weekly hours. This result is incompatible with proper operation of the service and below appropriate levels of productivity.
