A massive nationwide unlimited strike will start in France on Thursday against government’s pension reform plan. The strike is expected to lead to major disruption in public transport that may last until New Year.
Schools will be closed and public transport cancelled as everyone from teachers, postal workers, firefighters and hospital staff protest proposed pension reforms, RFI reported.
Air France has canceled 30 percent of flights in France and 15 percent of mid-distance flights. Ninety percent of high-speed TGV trains will stop working as well. It is expected that only 30 percent of buses and trams will continue working in Paris.
