The start of the summer holidays in France was marked by protests from passenger transport workers. According to the warnings of the unionists, strikes began on 1 July at the Paris airports: named after Charles de Gaulle and Paris Orly. Some regional rail trains were also affected.
On Friday, July 2, videos surfaced on social media showing ground workers at Paris-Roissy-Charles de Gaulle Airport closing one of the terminals. The French, linked to three union centers, closed the passport control area, causing numerous delays.
The police used tear gas to restore normal operation at the crossing. Protesters, officials and bystanders alike suffered. Travelers share their stories online and confirm their fear of seeing police riot gear, especially the large shields.
Demonstrators do not agree to wage cuts, which in turn have been interpreted by the management of the Paris airport network with a pandemic drop in revenue by 80%. The strike, backed by railway workers, is expected to last until July 5.
