Tomorrow (Tuesday) could be a tough day for travelers and others, as protests by taxi drivers, air traffic controllers and farmers promise disruptions.
A taxi driver strike planned for Tuesday may block roads in the area of Paris CDG airport, as well as along the PÉripherique ring road around the city. The drivers continue to be upset over unlicensed competition from Uber and others, and government failure to enforce regulations.
The air traffic controllers say that 50% of flights could be affected, although aviation authorities expect only 20% will be delayed or cancelled. Airlines have not yet notified passengers of which services will be affected.
And in western France, farmers have been blockading roads in a protest against falling prices for farm produce that has effectively cut their income—similar to the complaint of public service unions that wage freezes have effectively cut their real wages.
