Rail unions have called for new transport strikes to start on Tuesday, including the Eurotunnel services between France and England.Rail traffic was already being disrupted on Monday with one in two fast TGV trains running, and one in three normal-speed trains running.Although the Eurostar train service between Paris and London is normal, there is no Eurostar service between Brussels and London on Monday due to a strike in Belgium.On Saturday, a fifth day of protests brought 825,000 people on to the streets, police said, although unions put the figure at 2.5 million to 3 million.The pension reforms have already been approved by the National Assembly, the lower house of the French parliament.The upper house, the Senate, has endorsed the key articles on raising the retirement age, and is due to vote on the full text on Wednesday.
