The third biggest air traffic controller union, Unsa-ICNA had planned a six day strike from 24 June onwards. After talks between union leaders and the government the strike was cancelled. The air traffic controllers were protesting against expected cuts in the 2015-2019 budget that France is due to send to the European Commission for the Single European Sky Plan by 30 June. The strike was called off after the government recognised the ‘importance of investment in the sector’ said the trade union which launched the protest. Ryanair, which was forced to cancel around 200 flights, had slammed the strike and called on the EU Commission to remove the right to strike from Europe's air traffic controllers, who were ‘once more attempting to blackmail ordinary consumers with strikes’.
