The garbage collectors of the City of Paris began Monday a strike movement against the pension reform that will continue Tuesday, day of great mobilization, said the City of Paris and the CGT.

"Waste collection and access to treatment sites have been disrupted since this morning in Paris because of the strike movement," the town hall told AFP, according to which "several garages are affected, as is the Ivry incinerator," which covers part of Paris and its southeastern suburbs.

"In at least four districts, garbage has not been collected: the VIth, XIVth, XVIIth and XXth for the moment," said in the afternoon Natacha Pommet, secretary general of the CGT public services.

A few dozen garbage collectors have begun to occupy the waste incineration plant at Porte d'Ivry, said Régis Vieceli, general secretary of the CGT cleaning union (FTDNEEA).

"We will sleep there and as of tonight, the employees of the factory will be on strike too," he added, indicating that there was "no one who returned since [the] morning".
