France -Bus drivers strike -November 20, 2015

In a dispute that started in October bus drivers are protesting against new policies set by state-owned operator RATP that adversely affect both public transport services and workers’ rights. According to CGT-Transport, the unions consulted widely before deciding that the strike should go ahead, defying massive pressure from management. The action is over deteriorating working conditions due to a lack of staff (with a shortfall of 1,300 jobs), the freezing of salaries and the scraping of social protection.
