For reasons unknown, at this point, to any media outlet that I have been able to find, train drivers here in the Alpes Maritimes went on strike at midnight last night.
The Cannes police have been threatening to go on strike during the film festival unless their blackmail requests serious grievances are met. I think that the municipality has paid them off begun to redress their problems but I could be wrong.
In Corsica the "Corse Matin" newspaper has been affected by strike action for the last couple of weeks and this has occasionally spilled over into sister papers like the "Nice Matin". Workers at another newspaper, France Soir, have been on strike for something like a month now.
The Corsican employees of SNCM - the state-owned soon to be privatised ferry service to Corsica - may go on strike (again) to protest at redundancies. This despite the fact that the SNCM workers as a whole have approved the privatization and expected 20% voluntary redundancies by 77% to 23%.
Youth custody workers (I think that's the best translation of "personnels de la protection judiciaire de la jeunesse") are on strike today (translation) to protest chnages to the law regarding the punishment of young offenders.
A seach for "grève" on French Yahoo news produced about 2500 hits including some of the ones above. A search on French Google news gave me over 3000 hits and initially led me to believe that France 2 TV was on strike before I realized that for some reason it showed a news item on a strike on 2002 as being 1 hour old (mind you that article reported the extreme cruelty of France 2, which inflicts Benny Hill on its audience when its workers are on strike - perhaps someone could suggest this as an alternative to waterboarding to the Guantanamo interogators).
