Protesters clashed with police outside a waste sorting facility in Ivry-sur-Seine early on Tuesday morning, as employees joined together with trade union members to block access to the facility.
Several members of the General Confederation of Labour (CGT) took local police by surprise as they gathered by the waste sorting centre in Ivry-sur-Seine, to block its access in protest against proposed pension reforms. One of the protesters was seen welding a metal post onto one of the centre’s gates to impede access to it.
The nationwide strike, which started in early December, is one of the biggest to hit the country in years and has been affecting rail, road and air transportation. The action comes days after the government and unions resumed talks on pension reforms.
