France tries to resolve strike woes before Euro 2016

French rail unions were holding make-or-break talks with employers late Monday to try to end a six-day strike that threatens to disrupt the Euro 2016 football championships. Ahead of Euro 2016’s kick-off Friday, France is still struggling with the impact of the rail strike, which combined with recent heavy flooding in Paris and other parts of the country to leave train services severely affected on Monday. To make matters worse, Air France pilots are threatening a four-day strike from June 11 in a long-running internal dispute over pay and investment in the airline.
