French unions called for public transport workers to continue strike action for a third day on 15-Oct-2010 in protest at the government's plan to increase the minimum retirement age to 62 from 60 (Bloomberg, 14-Oct-2010). Air traffic controllers held a one-day strike on 13-Oct-2010, and air traffic returned to normal on 14-Oct-2010. Unions plan more demonstrations 16-Oct-2010. [more - Blackpool International Airport]
