PARIS, June 13 Unions have called for workers at
all of Uniper's power generation plants in France to
go on strike from June 19 to 26, a spokesman for Uniper said on
The spokesman said the CGT, FO and CFE-CGC unions had called
for the industrial action but no reason was given, adding that
it was unclear how many workers would join the strike or if the
stoppage would impact electricity production.
The unions organised weekly strikes earlier this year to
protest a wage freeze in the sector.
French electricity grid operator RTE said on its website
that it had been notified of the strike action.
Uniper's electricity generation fleet in France includes
coal, gas, biomass, wind, and solar, with a total installed
capacity of over 2,000 megawatts.
