Eurotunnel works to avoid strike

NEW YORK -- Eurotunnel was in negotiations with labor unions to fend off work stoppages planned for Dec. 2, 9 and 12.

The talks to avert a virtual shutdown of the Channel Tunnel came as French transport workers scheduled work stoppages at Paris airports.

The combination of strikes by tunnel and airport unions would create havoc in the cross-channel market, officials noted.
