Strikes in France result in energy production losses worth one billion euros

According to Reuters’ report, EDF has started to review new hiring plans after the strikes and job loss.

Two sources, reportedly union members, reported that they were briefed by EDF executives in separate conversations last week, and EDF management asked which hirings from all departments could be postponed to next year.

One source said the 96 percent state-owned company, which is in the process of being fully nationalized, plans to hire between 3,000 and 3,500 people in 2023, mostly in nuclear production and sales.

Workers at the EDF have been part of nationwide strikes to protest the government’s plan to raise the retirement age from 62 to 64.

President Emmanuel Macron has pledged to pursue reform despite nationwide protests and threats by unions to bring France to a halt.
