  • French transport strike enters 12th day

    Paris, Dec. 16 (EFE / EPA), (Camera: Paula Bayarte).- French transport strike entered Monday its 12th day showing no signs of slowing down.FOOTAGE OF THE WORKERS ON STRIKE ON MONDAY IN PARIS. SOUNDBITES OF DANIEL TEIRLYNCK, RAIL WORKER WITH THE UNSA UNION:“Today after two weeks of strike, that maybe will become three, I will lose between 2,000 and 2,500 euros next month. I’m doing it, because if I don't go on strike and the reform is approved as it is, I would lose between 500 and 700 euros per month during my retirement, maybe for 20 years, the calculation can be quickly done.”“Christmas truce is a hypocritical media game by politicians. It’s not us who have decided that the reform is presented in December, or that it’s so bad. Politicians say they want a merry Christmas, but they know that a truce is the end of the movement and that it’s a defeat for us, so it isn’t questionable.”“The government refuses to discuss and negotiate, tells us the reform is this, let's discuss its application. And no, we don't want this reform neither for us nor for our children. If there is a reform, there should be no losers. Today everyone is losing, it is unacceptable.”
