EDF Power Output May Be Affected by Nov. 17 Strike, Union Says

Nov. 14 (Bloomberg) -- Electricite de France SA’s power output may be affected by a strike on Nov. 17, according to the Confederation Generale du Travail labor union.

The strike by power and natural gas workers at EDF and GDF Suez SA is to protest against next year’s salary proposals by the utilities, said Yves Ledoux of the CGT, the union representing the most energy workers in France.

Any drop in output “likely won’t be a lot,” Ledoux said by phone. He was unable to estimate the possible decline.

The union last organized a strike on Sept. 22 at EDF and nuclear reactor designer Areva SA to protest against working conditions for sub-contractors.
