France -Air traffic controllers call for strike -June 23, 2015

Strike call as workers fed up with salaries and the lack of resources pumped into their industry.

Trade unions representing the air traffic controllers have called for a strike on July 2nd and 3rd. Two unions announced that the workers were fed up with their salaries and the lack of resources pumped into their industry. The unions want fresh talks over the working conditions of its members and a particular item of contention is the pushing back of the retirement age for air traffic controllers from the age of 57 to 59.
