French Train Strikes Through June

French train workers began striking against labor reforms on April 2, with strikes scheduled to occur two days out of every five for three months. It is expected that only trains operating between stations in France would have interrupted service, with no effect on international train service.

The strikes were announced after President Emmanuel Macron proposed to sign new hires in many public sectors to different contracts with few benefits. Many other unions, including energy trades and waste management, were also striking.
