French utility EDF receives warning of a 24-hour strike from May 8

PARIS, May 3 (Reuters) - French state-controlled utility EDF has received warning of a 24-hour strike starting on Wednesday May 8, electricity grid operator RTE said on Friday.

RTE did not say whether the strike would have an impact on power generation.

French trade union confederation CGT has called for a nationwide strike on May 9 to protest President Emmanuel Macron’s policies.
