France -Paris airport workers on strike over wage freeze -February 13, 2015

Workers at three Paris airports went on strike against the wage freeze imposed by their employer Aéroports de Paris, which runs the Charles de Gaulle, Orly and Le Bourget airports.

Workers at three Paris airports went on strike against the wage freeze imposed by their employer Aéroports de Paris, which runs the Charles de Gaulle, Orly and Le Bourget airports. The strike, which was intended to be a one-day strike but went into its second day on Friday 13 February, disrupted traffic at Charles de Gaulles airport, where about 20% of the flights were cancelled. The workers refuse to accept the proposed pay freeze in light of the €358 million profit that the company made in 2014. A trade union spokesperson said that shareholders receive all the benefits from the company’s well-functioning operations, while its employees are asked to accept a wage freeze.
