Le Monde staff to stage second strike

Staff at French daily newspaper Le Monde are taking further industrial action over plans to cut 129 jobs including 90 of the title’s journalists, the AFP reports.

Today’s strike – voted for yesterday – is the second in a week after action was taken on Monday.

The paper’s management says the planned cuts, which include sale of several magazines also published by the group, will ‘save the publication’.
