Strikes Roll Across Europe as Unions Push for Higher Wages to Offset Inflation

Strikes are stalling trains in France, delaying criminal proceedings in England and hampering air travel across Europe, while union leaders across the continent are taking advantage of the rising cost of living to demand sometimes substantial pay rises.

Cabin crew based in Spain for a low-cost airline easyJet PLC is demanding a 40% increase in their base salary and future annual increases in line with inflation amid strikes they plan to continue this month. In England, criminal lawyers – who are self-employed but receive fees from the government for representing defendants who cannot afford their own lawyers – are demanding a 25% pay rise in a strike spanning a second week.
