French workers suspend strike at Fos-Lavera oil port – union official

Share the News

PARIS (Reuters) – French CGT union workers have suspended a four-week strike at the Fos-Lavera oil terminal in southern France, a union official told Reuters on Sunday.

Hardline CGT members at France’s biggest oil port terminal joined nationwide rolling protests against government labour reforms on May 23, disrupting the loading and unloading of vessels including oil, LNG and chemical tankers.

CGT Union representative Pascal Galeote said workers at the port terminal would now join national days of protest scheduled for June 23 and June 28.

The government held its first meeting in three months with the CGT on Friday, though neither side suggested there had been any breakthrough. CGT union chief Philippe Martinez said the talks had done nothing to alter plans for street demonstrations on Thursday that the government may be ban.
