PARIS, June 15 French state-controlled utility
EDF has been notified of a 24-hour strike starting on
June 21, the company said on its website, but EDF did not say if
the industrial action would cut French electricity output.
EDF, which operates France's 58 nuclear reactors which
provide more than 75 percent of its electricity needs, did not
give any further details about the strike.
Uniper, which has a total power generation
capacity of 2,000 megawatts in France, said earlier on Tuesday
that the CGT, FO and CFE-CGC unions had called for workers at
all its power generation plants in France to down tools for a
week from June 19-26.
Workers in the French gas and electricity sector organised
weekly strikes earlier this year to protest against a wage
freeze in the sector.
