  • Description

    Unsettled conditions in the car industries of Europe were reflected in Paris Oct 19 when thousands of workers of the State-owned Renault company - France's largest car makers - staged a mass protest over the dismissal of more than 3,000 employees due to redundancy mainly over falling exports to the U.S.

    Marchers bore placards saying 'Renault can pay,' 'No sackings,' and 'Peace in Algeria' too. They marched from the factory to a local town hall where strike leaders said the sackings could be avoided by introducing now a 40-hour work week. Last month Renault cut it from 48 hours to 45.
