French unions

Roads-2-Roam has warned many times about the potential for strikes impacting you when traveling through or over France so it should be no surprise to hear that French workers are again on strike.

This time it is the refiner unions who have caused petroleum shortages at stations throughout France. Air traffic controllers have have also joined in so much of the budget airlines are affected.  The cause for this are changes to the strict employment laws of France and the hardcorde CGT union are pushing back against this.

All this comes at a time when France are about to host the Euro 2016 football tournament.

Sheesh. What a messed up country.

I was planning on going to Normandy this summer but will look at somewhere else.

CGT and French Government : Feed them to the lions
