French workers to hold two more national days of action

French unions have called two more national days of action to protest at the government's pension reforms.

They announced the dates of 28 October and 6 November after a meeting in Paris on Thursday afternoon.

Meanwhile, the Senate has curtailed debate on more than 1,000 amendments to the bill and may vote as early as Thursday night.
