Locals and travellers in cities across France are set to face a day of travel misery on Friday, October 20, after six major transport unions called a one-day strike, The Local claims.

Some 50,000 transport workers in cities nationwide will down tools meaning people in cities like Lyon, Bordeaux, Marseille, Montpellier, Grenoble and Lille will face travel chaos. However, transport in Paris will not be affected.

In all, some 127 strike notices have been posted across France, meaning services will be hit in small towns and big cities across the country.

The strike has been called after talks over pay and working conditions broke down on Monday.

With talks not to be renewed before next February, travellers could face further disruption throughout the European winter.
