France - Strike against power grid privatisation - September 30, 2016

Trade union CGT has called for an action day on 21 September 2016 against the privatisation of power grid operator RTE. The CGT opposes this first step towards the privatization of the electricity grid which might lead to the degradation of user service by means of tariff increase and reduction of the maintenance network. The union is of the opinion that this could lead to the undermining of social benefits.
