Workers at Elengy's three liquified natural gas (LNG) terminals in France have voted to stage two 24-hour strikes on Thursday and next Tuesday as part of nationwide protests against a labour reform bill, a CGT union official said on Wednesday.
 
The strikes will halt unloading of LNG tankers and reduce production of gas for the grid to minimum levels, the official told Reuters.
 
A previous stoppage last month had already disrupted activity at the terminals before unloading operations resumed last Friday, the official said.
