The U.S. Embassy in France informs U.S. citizens that several national unions across a variety of sectors intend to hold a nationwide strike on Thursday, April 28. In addition, there will be national demonstrations against labor reforms.
Public services and transportation, including urban transport systems and the national rail network, are likely to be impacted by the strikes. Getting through train stations could take longer than usual and lines at automated machines are likely to be long. There could be resulting cancellations and delays to scheduled trains.
Travelers are advised to verify the status of their trains prior to arriving at the station and to allow extra time.
