Le Monde on hold as journalists strike over cuts

By Patrick

There may be a few industrial disputes in British newspapers at the moment but in France striking journalists halted production of the national daily Le Monde yesterday for only the second time in its history.

French readers won’t be able to buy today’s edition either after some 100 people – mostly Le Monde workers – demonstrated outside the Paris offices of the paper, whose management plan to cut 130 mainly newsroom jobs.

A one-day walkout at Express Newspapers over a three per cent pay deal last Friday failed to hugely affect production of the company’s four national titles, though a further three-day strike next week may have a more severe impact.
