France - Taxi, aviation and civil servant strikes - January 31, 2016

A wave of strikes in several sectors went over the country; taxi drivers blocked key roads and hundreds of flights have been cancelled as air traffic controllers joined civil servants, hospital workers and teachers for a day of strikes. The taxi drivers blocked the capital's ring road in a demonstration against upstart competitors such as Uber. Air traffic controllers organised a strike over pay and working conditions. The public service workers have been called to down tools to protest against labour reforms proposed last September affecting pay and career advancement. Kindergarten and primary school teachers went on strike for higher pay.
