France - Industrial action over production stop - September 30, 2016

Trade unions at train maker Alstom called on a strike on 27 September 2016 to protest plans to stop locomotive production at the company's historic Belfort plant in eastern France. President Hollande has urged Alstom, in which the state holds a 20 percent stake, not to go ahead with the plans, which would see production shifted to another plant in France while workers would be relocated to other sites.
