French ATC strike called off at eleventh hour

A strike by French air traffic controllers was called off following last-ditch talks yesterday.

The planned walkout for today and tomorrow threatened to cause flight chaos across Europe.

The lifting of the strike notice was confirmed by France’s aviation authority, the Direction Générale de L’aviation Civile (DGAC).

The Syndicat National des Contrôleurs du Trafic Aérien (SNCTA) controller’s union said: “After a last round of negotiations the SNCTA union of air traffic controllers, the majority union in the profession, has lifted its strike notice for July 2nd and 3rd.”
