A nationwide multi-sector strike, accompanied by demonstrations, is being organized by labor unions and opposition parties on June 6. This upcoming event marks the fourteenth nationwide occurrence since January as part of an ongoing campaign opposing the government’s pension reforms. The extent of disruptions expected on June 6 remains uncertain as of May 31.
The participation of the union representing air traffic controllers (ATC) in the strike scheduled for June 6 is currently unknown as of May 31. Previous strikes involving ATCs have resulted in flight disruptions at French airports and within French airspace. In response to such strikes, the Directorate General of Civil Aviation (DGAC) has requested airlines to reduce flight schedules by 20-25 percent at several airports, including Paris-Orly Airport (ORY), Toulouse-Blagnac Airport (TLS), Bordeaux-Merignac Airport (BOD), Marseille-Provence Airport (MRS), and Nantes-Atlantique Airport (NTE). It is expected that affected airports will experience ongoing disruptions even after the strike days, as airlines readjust their aircraft and crew positioning and airports manage passenger backlogs.
