Strikers over planned pension reforms blocked seven out of eight French refineries, General Confederation of Labour said.

Report informs citing TASS that the CGT union will decide next week whether to declare an unlimited strike at oil refineries, including potential production shut down mid next week if unions decide to harden that stance in the ongoing protest.

Workers at six of France’s seven refineries joined the nationwide protest on Tuesday following a call by unions for workers to stage one of the biggest protests in decades, against President Emmanuel Macron’s pension reforms.

Thierry Defresne, an official of the hardline CGT trade union, said that oil sector workers will continue the strike for 72 hours and will decide mid next week whether they’ll declare an unlimited strike.
