Today a group of six French unions said they are planning a fresh strike Oct. 12, and a day of protest Oct. 2, against government plans to overhaul the country's pensions system.
Calling for a "new day of massive strikes and protests" on Oct. 12, to coincide with a debate on the pensions bill in the Senate, the unions are striving to make my holiday uncomfortable. I'll be in the thick of it. Hopefully, the massive protests won't interrupt my flight home. It should be anything but boring!
