The Directorate General of Civil Aviation (DGAC) asked airlines to cancel a third of their flights at Paris-Orly on Tuesday June 6 due to the participation of air traffic controllers in a strike against the pension reform. These preventive deletions were also required for one in five flights from or to the airports of Lyon, Marseille, Nice, Toulouse, Bordeaux and Nantes, specified the DGAC in a press release published Thursday, June 1, warning that “disruptions and delays” more were likely.

“We will not turn the page: together, united and determined to win the withdrawal of reform and for social progress, let’s build strikes and demonstrations everywhere on June 6”had written, on May 30 in a press release, the inter-union grouping together eight unions and five youth organizations.

This fourteenth day of strikes and demonstrations will be held two days before the examination in Parliament of a bill tabled by the Liot group providing for the repeal of the reform, which the government and the presidential majority consider unconstitutional.
