New France strike as pension reform bill passed

French unions and protesters were mounting another day of strikes and action yesterday over the government’s pension reform, despite the plan being passed, BBC News said. Public transport, including flights to and from Orly airport in Paris, were seeing renewed disruption. But support for the strikes is said to be waning after the National Assembly voted on Wednesday to raise the pension age by two years, from 60 to 62. The bill faces a legal challenge before France’s president can sign it off.
