French government mediates US plant labor crisis

French government mediates US plant labor crisis

French Industry Minister Christian Estrosi will meet with representatives of a U.S. electronic components plant Tuesday to mediate a dispute with workers opposing the plant's closure.
The Illinois-based Molex Inc. temporarily closed its branch near the southern city of Toulouse earlier this month after accusing workers of injuring an American manager as part of a protest against the plant's closure in October. The workers say they only pelted him with eggs.
Disgruntled workers have camped out outside the plant, demanding better severance packages.
Estrosi will meet with Molex executives Tuesday morning to look for a way out of the crisis.
France has been engulfed in a series of worker protests amid the global financial crisis.
