A major strike by workers at the French state railway SNCF, including train drivers is expected to paralyze rail travel across France.

Three months of train stoppages are set to begin today (April 2) evening, as trade unions push back against President Emmanuel Macron’s labour reforms.

Foreign media reports that most people will be able to get home normally after Easter weekend before the trains stop.

The waste collection, electricity and energy sectors also expect strikes.
