Hundreds of Workers Demanding Pay Rise Storm Public Transport HQ in Paris

Hundreds of workers stormed the headquarters of the company managing public transport in Paris on February 8, demanding a pay rise. Footage by Luc Auffret shows RATP maintenance workers forcing their way inside the group's headquarters, lighting flares and chanting "Û300", which Auffret said was the pay rise they demanded to "keep up with inflation." A union spokesman took to social media, where he https://twitter.com/John_Borges_/status/1755583891404890154 said that the protest was held in reaction to the RATP's "salary negotiation sham", ahead of this year's https://www.paris2024.org/en/ Olympic Games , due to be held in Paris. He said that unless the workers received a "real" salary rise, transport maintenance would be disturbed throughout the event. (Footage by Luc Auffret/Storyful via Getty Images UGC)
