EDF nuclear plant staff on strike over pension reform in France

Workers at French utility EDF's (EDF.PA) nuclear plants are going on a rolling strike from this afternoon over planned pension reform, which is is expected to lead to lower power output, the FNME-CGT union said on Twitter, APA reports citing Reuters.

The decision was linked to the start of a debate in the French Senate over pension reform and the possible termination of preferential pension regimes for certain categories of workers, they said.

At 1700 CET, a relatively low 1.1 gigawatt of capacity - the equivalent of about one nuclear reactor - was offline.

President Emmanuel Macron has vowed to go ahead with the reform, which aims to raise the country’s minimum retirement age from 62 to 64, despite nationwide demonstrations and strikes.
