    Air France Unions Call For Mid-Summer Strike:confused:

    Unions at Air France on Monday called for a four-day strike by flight attendants at the end of July, raising the threat of travel disruption over a peak holiday period.

    The walkout, scheduled for July 29, 30, 31 and August 1, is to be held in protest against a reorganisation of flight attendants' work at regional hubs that Air France is setting up to counter competition from low-cost airlines.

    "We refuse to become victims of productivity," representatives of seven unions, including the CGT and CFDT, said in a statement.
