July 15, 2016 New nationwide French general strike is being planned for Thursday, September 15, 2016. You will be inconvenienced in some shape or form.
Expect taxi, public transportation - trains, (perhaps international trains) metro, buses and maritime workers - ferries to strike along with airline and airport workers. Minimal services will be in effect. You will still be able to get around just don't expect to be on time. Expect traffic jams in Paris, Lyon.
Air France always takes the brunt of any strike action. Prepare for the worst, your airport exit may be blocked by taxi’s. If so, you will have to "hoof it" with your luggage, children, elderly.
Will French air traffic controllers join in? Unfortunately this information will not be available till closer to the date. It’s customary for air traffic controllers to give 48 hours notice before any industrial action. They might ask airlines to cut back flights to and from France by 10 - 30% or not at all.
