France passes pension reform

Last Updated 03 May 2018, 04:23 IST

The National Assembly approved the final text of the bill in a 336-233 vote on Wednesday, marking its final hurdle in parliament. Conservative President Nicolas Sarkozy is not expected to sign it for several weeks.

The vote comes as two straight weeks of pension strikes are losing momentum. Still, unions hope to revive the movement on Thursday with nationwide street demonstrations and strikes expected to cause new hassles for air travellers.
