France - Power station workers take strike action - October 23, 2009

Workers at the Lucy power station in the Bourgogne region began strike action on 21 October in protest at company plans for the closure of a part of the site and further restructuring. The coal-fired plant is owned by the SNET company which was recently taken over by German energy multinational EON. The FNME-CGT union argues that the company has failed to abide by agreements about maintaining the site, has plans for further jobs cuts after closing one part of the site in 2013, and has failed to negotiate a proper mobility agreement.
