Workers’ strike paralyses rail travel across France

Reports say the strike is expected to be the biggest wave of industrial unrest since President Emmanuel Macron’s election in May as trade unions push back against his labour reforms.

Recall that on 22 March, tens of thousands of teachers, nurses and other workers joined rail staff in the strike action.

Reports say waste collection, electricity and energy sectors are also expected to join the strikes- a sign of widespread opposition to Mr Macron’s plans for state sector liberalisation.
