French police fired tear gas at stone-throwing protesters Tuesday during the latest march in Paris against the Socialist government's labor reforms.Dozens of protests and other actions were also held elsewhere in France.Seven unions meanwhile submitted what they called partial results from a public survey on the draft labor law, with 92 percent of 700,000 respondents calling for its withdrawal.Prime Minister Manuel Valls will meet union leaders on Wednesday and Thursday but has already signaled he is not open to further modifying a text that has already been watered down.The two sides have not met since early March, although Valls telephoned union leaders on May 28 .The Senate's version of the labor reform bill is tougher on workers' rights than a version that was forced through the National Assembly without a vote last month.
