GENERAL STRIKE ALERT IN FRANCE
November 29, 2019
Several trade unions issued a joint statement calling for a nationwide general strike on Thursday, December 5th, to denounce France's universal pension system.
Related transportation disruptions are anticipated as the national rail operator SNCF, the Parisian public transportation operator RATP and Air France's ground staff have announced they will join the strike.
Individuals in France are advised to monitor the situation, anticipate severe transportation disruptions as well as demonstrations leading to major traffic jams.
At DHL we anticipate delays due to strikes and road blocks all over France, which can also have an impact on shipments to Iberia due to transit via France.
