Train or bus from Caen to Chamonix

We are spending a few days in Normandy in September, renting a car which we will return to Caen. From there we have to get to Chamonix to connect with a group or we could meet them in Geneva. If we book tickets on a train, I am worried that a strike could wreck our travel plans. Perhaps we should just fly CDG to Geneva, but I'd rather not. Fly Caen to Lyon and then bus?

Suggestions appreciated!

For heaven's sake! The current rolling train strikes are scheduled to run to the end of June, and there is no indication at all that they will be extended into September. And even now, trains are running on most lines on strike days.

Plan on travelling by train, buying tickets from en.oui.sncf/en or www.trainline.eu
