    Background: FRANCE IS FACING A BIG NATIONAL CAMPAIGN BY TRADE UNIONISTS TRYING TO WIN A WIDE RANGE OF CONCESSIONS. THE CAMPAIGN STARTED TODAY (TUESDAY) WITH DOZENS OF TOKEN STRIKES THROUGHOUT THE COUNTRY.

    THE FIRST STRIKES WERE AIMED AT PRIVATE INDUSTRY, WITH CHEMICAL, TEXTILE AND CONSTRUCTION PLANTS AFFECTED. LATER, STATE EMPLOYEES IN THE TRANSPORT, GAS AND ELECTRICITY SERVICES WILL ALSO STAGE WALKOUTS.

    THOUSANDS OF TODAY'S STRIKERS MARCHED THROUGH PARIS CARRYING BANNERS DEMANDING HIGHER WAGES AND BETTER CONDITIONS. THE UNION CHIEFS LED THEM TO THE HEADQUARTERS OF THE EMPLOYERS' ASSOCIATION, WHERE THE POLICE WERE OUT IN FORCE TO CONTROL THE MARCHERS.

    BANK EMPLOYEES HAVE ALSO SAID THEY WILL GO ON STRIKE, AND SCHOOL TEACHERS ARE THREATENING A WALKOUT TO FOLLOW ONE STAGED BY UNIVERSITY PROFESSORS.
