EDF says a third of its French workforce is on strike

PARIS, Sept 19 (Reuters) - Around 20,000 EDF workers were on strike at midday on Thursday, the state-controlled French utility said, amounting to about one third of its workforce in France.

The nationwide two-day strike against a restructuring plan lowered French power generation by about 9%. (Reporting by Bate Felix; Writing by Benoit Van Overstraeten; Editing by Richard Lough)
