Is the RER train ticket office at CDG open during a strike day?

Greetings Ben:
Thank you for your very informative articles, "Paris Metro" and "CDG Airport Terminal 2 to Paris" and "Paris Train Metro Week Pass – Navigo Découverte".
Based on this information, my plan was, upon arriving at CDG airport, go to the RER train ticket office, the "Billets Paris et Ile-de-France SNCF" and purchase the weekly pass, "Navigo Découverte Pass" for zone 1-5. And use this pass to navigate my way out to zone 3 where I will be staying.
Unfortunately, I am arriving by plane to CDG on one of the planned SNCF strike days (Thursday morning, June 7).
My question is this: will the "Billets Paris et Ile-de-France SNCF" office be open on this planned strike day, or any planned strike day for that matter, or, is it closed as part of the strike?
For instance, last month in April, was the ticket office at CDG open or closed on the strike days, or, something in-between (e.g., reduced hours and/or reduced staff)?

The Ile-de-France train ticket office (i.e. for RER B tickets / Navigo passes, etc.) at CDG Airport Terminal 2 train station will be open during the Paris train strike.  There will likely be a longer wait at the ticket lines so plan ahead for that.  RER B trains will continue to run throughout the Paris train strike, and ticket offices will stay open, but with reduced frequency and reduced staff, hence the longer times.
Thanks for the kind words about the articles.
