Thousands join public sector strike against Macron
    2017-October-11  08:53    Shenzhen Daily

THOUSANDS of French public sector workers angered by Emmanuel Macron’s plans to freeze their pay and eliminate 120,000 jobs went on strike yesterday, amplifying opposition to the president’s cost-cutting, pro-business agenda.

Nine unions representing 5.4 million public workers joined together to call for a day of nationwide strikes and demonstrations to show their “profound disagreement” with Macron’s bid to transform the gargantuan public service.

The protests are the fourth round of demonstrations in France since September aimed at forcing the president to row back on his reforms, with the government’s response being closely watched by European allies and investors.

Yesterday’s action was the first time in a decade that all nine public sector unions have issued a joint strike call.(SD-Agencies)
