Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Essentially, the RER B line is split between the SNCF to the north and the RATP in the center and to the south. It used to be that the driver would change at Gare du Nord - causing a two to three minutes delay for the train, that was a bit cumbersome on such a busy line. The strike is caused by the move to have the drivers drive on the whole line rather than only on their company's tracks ; apparently that one strike was caused by claims the drivers are being overworked.
