LIVE: French trade unions return to the streets to protest labour reforms

A unity demonstration against the French labour reform law is scheduled to take place in Paris on Tuesday, May 17, as part of a general strike called by seven trade unions. This demonstration will be the sixth that has been organised by the trade unions against the ‘El Khomri law’, named after the French Labour Minister Myriam El Khomri. The proposed law look into almost all aspects of France’s labour laws. Stipulations on maximum working hours, holidays and breaks are among the areas that will be open to negotiation as the government attempts to liberalise France’s labour market.
