NEWS Air France pilot unions call for strike during Euro 2016

Air France’s pilot unions have called on members to strike during the first week of the Euro 2016 soccer championship in a protest over pay, although the airline’s chief executive said fans could just drive or take the train. The unions said in a joint statement they planned to strike from June 11 until June 14 and might schedule further strikes a few days later if necessary. The soccer tournament begins in Paris on June 10 and will run until July 10.
