Striking French labour union employees stand near a barricade to block the entrance of the depot of the SFDM company near the oil refinery of DongesBy Brian Love and Ingrid Melander PARIS (Reuters) - France's hardline CGT union sought to choke off power and fuel supplies and hamper the country's public transport network on Thursday in a showdown with a government that flatly refused to withdraw a contested labour law reform. The standoff, which raises the spectre of disruption during the France-hosted European soccer tournament that opens on June 10, was condemned both by Socialist Prime Minister Manuel Valls and the country's other big trade union, the CFDT. "There is no question of changing tack, even if adjustments are always possible," said Valls, adding that he would in no case scrap the part of the law that put the CGT on the warpath in the first place.
