More Strikes In France

MORE STRIKES IN FRANCE

Over 75 Ryanair flights are set to be cancelled today due to a strike by air traffic controllers in France.

It’s their 50th day of industrial action since 2009 and the ninth in the past 10 weeks.

Flights in, and out of France have been grounded, with delays expected to spill over into the weekend.

Meanwhile France’s train network is expected to be badly hit today by more strikes – days before Euro 2016 kicks off.

Unions say disruption during the month-long tournament is possible – as they try and prevent new employment laws from coming in.

One pilots’ union has announced a strike on Saturday week – a day after the football event begins.
