French authorities announced on Friday that the amount of waste in the streets of Paris has reached 10,000 tons due to a strike by garbage collectors, despite Interior Minister Gerald Darmanin's announcement that the strikers were forced to return to work under emergency powers designed to protect essential services.
Meanwhile, the mayor of the ninth arrondissement, Delphine Bürkli, proposed calling in the army to clean up the streets.
Garbage workers have been on strike in Paris for 12 days in protest of a proposed pension reform that would raise the legal retirement age in this sector from 57 to 59, a controversial move.
A conference is scheduled for Monday that will bring together members of the parliamentary groups and the National Assembly to consider a proposal of no confidence in the government, presented by a small group of independent MPs and the far-right, according to parliamentary sources
