French public sector workers went on strike Tuesday against President Emmanuel Macron's plans to cull jobs and toughen pay conditions, forcing airlines to cancel hundreds of flights and disrupting school activities.It is the first time in a decade that all unions representing more than 5 million public workers have rallied behind a protest call.The Economy Ministry said just 14 percent of state civil servants had been on strike and just 9.5 percent in local administration.Protests last month against labor law reform that were led by private sector unions failed to persuade Macron to change policy course, but the French labor movement has traditionally been more muscular in the public sector.
