Travel misery ahead as France set for new mass rail strike [The Local]





Date: 20/04/2016

France is set for another day of disruption and delays on the trains as French trade unions representing rail workers have issued a joint call to observe a one-day strike on Tuesday, April 26th. The call to strike on April 26th is the first since 2013 that is supported by all of Frances trade unions (the CGT, Unsa, Sud and CFDT) and will likely cause huge disruption to rail services around the country. The strike is a move by unions to flex their muscles as they continue to negotiate with rail operator SNCF over working conditions and wages. [From Richard Buckby]
