  • Description

    ONLY ONE IN FOUR SUBURBAN TRAINS WERE RUNNING IN PARIS TODAY (FRIDAY) BECAUSE OF A RAIL STRIKE. THOUSANDS OF HOME-GOING PARISIANS WERE AFFECTED AND TRAFFIC JAMS CLOGGED THE STREETS.

    THE STRIKE BY RAILWAY WORKERS IS OVER PAY DEMANDS AND CONDITIONS, AND LIKE TODAY, TOMORROW WILL MEAN ANOTHER DAY OF INTERMITTENT STOPPAGES. FRENCH POSTAL WORKERS ARE ALSO HAVING A SIMILAR STRIKE OVER FORTY-EIGHT HOURS.

    AT THE SUBURBAN RAIL STATIONS, TRAVELLERS ANXIOUS TO GET HOME, DASHED ACROSS THE TRACKS AND CLIMBED INTO THE RARE TRAIN THAT WAS OPERATING. ON TUESDAY, FURTHER CHAOS IS EXPECTED WHEN THE PARIS UNDERGROUND RAILWAY WORKERS WILL STOP FOR 24 HOURS.
