Strikes paralyze rail traffic in France for 12. time

There are queues of around 630 kilometres on the way to Paris on Monday morning, where togansatte strikes again.

French commuters stood on Monday morning up to 12. day of strike in the transport sector.

Bilkøerne from the suburbs into the French capital, Paris, have all been up against the 630 mile long in peak hours on Monday.

Congestion on the motorways is estimated to be more than twice as big as it used to be, as a result of the cancelled subway lines and trains.

the Strike is done as a rebellion against France's new pensions act, which is along the way.

The French government, which last week presented a new pension reform will raise the retirement age to 64 years of age in practice.

at the same time, the government will introduce a points system, which "must be the same for all". Until today there have been 42 special arrangements for everything from sailors to ballet dancers. They each have earned to your pension in different ways.

The new reform has been fierce criticism of the trade unions, which calls the reform "a gift to employers".

the trade Unions want it scrapped and have called for new demonstrations and strike again on Tuesday.

the Strike and the demonstrations have included togansatte, school teachers, lawyers, and truck drivers. Also the hospital staff and police officers have been on the street to demonstrate.

The new pension system should be sent to the vote at the end of February.

on Monday afternoon withdrew France's pensionreformschef, Jean-Paul Delevoye, themselves. It writes the politician on Twitter.

Jean-Paul Delevoye admitted at the weekend that he had not given up 13 positions in its sector - both paid and unpaid, as he should.

- Delevoye has acted in good faith, and he will now be able to explain themselves, says the president of the French republic Emmanuel Macron in a statement.
