French aviation unions call four day strike


Unions representing French aviation workers have voted for four days of strike action that is expected to disrupt air travel.

Unions representing French aviation workers, including pilots, flight attendants and baggage handlers, have voted for four days of strike action starting on Monday.

The unions are protesting a draft law that will require individual aviation workers to give 48 hours notice before taking strike action.

The bill was approved by France’s lower house last week and is being studied in the Senate.

It is unclear how much disruption the strike will cause as unions have not provided details about what form it will take.

Air France has already announced that passengers with tickets booked for 6-9 February can reschedule without charge.
