French rail users faced a third day of strike disruption Thursday but airport workers cancelled a planned walkout, easing fears for the Euro 2016 football championships.With barely a week to go until the Euro 2016 kicks off on June 10, air traffic controllers called off a walkout due to hit over the weekend.Although each of the strikes has its own motivations, the unions are united in opposition to the Socialist government's new labor reforms that have sparked three months of often violent protests. One Air France pilots' union has already threatened a walkout starting on June 11, and nuclear power workers were back on strike Thursday at 16 of the country's 19 power stations.The government has vowed not to capitulate to the unions, and Prime Minister Manuel Valls has decried the "waste" caused by the strikes.
