France24 - Unions call for new protests Oct. 19 as strikes continue for third day
French unions called for another day of strikes and protests to take place on October 19 over plans to raise the retirement age as an ongoing open-ended strike disrupted services and transport for a third day on Thursday.

"Union organisations ask the senators not to adopt this unfair reform," they said in a statement after Paris talks on their next move in a showdown with President Nicolas Sarkozy, who has refused to back down on the flagship reform of his term.
