French Strike Chaos to Get Worse?

Jump to last reply

The following article in today's NYTimes says that strikes in France may ramp up with "unlimited train and metro strikes, airport workers during next week and a national day of strikes June 14.

So if going to France and taking the train or metro or even flying in be prepared for major pertubations as the French say about such disruptions.

This is an interesting article about the background of French unions and their vigorous fight against a new labor law that attempts to make it easier for employers to shed workers when needed.

Ironically just 8% of French workers are in unions - one of the lowest in Europe but public support for unions and against the new labor law runs high - about 75% in one recent poll I've seen.
