Default strikers are strong

A new story entry has been added:

strikers are strong

The strike by oil workers has been the most disruptive tactic yet — and in response, the Interior Ministry opened a crisis coordination center Monday just to focus on the conflict. Severe disruptions to air travel, public transport, schools and other facilities are expected.

Currently the strikers are winning. French oil workers defied the government's demand Monday to get back to work and end fuel shortages. Youths and truckers joined in, facing off against riot police and creating chaos on the roads.

* Aviation authorities have been forced to tell short-haul planes coming in to make sure to bring enough fuel to get back.

* The government ordered airlines to drastically cut back their flights into France on Tuesday, when labor unions plan new nationwide protests and strikes across the public sector.
