Paris bosses in racism row

Issue No. 2349

Bosses in Paris told “black and Arab” porters not to come to work on the day of a visit by the Israeli president. That’s according to workers in the SUD union at the Gare du Nord station.

The French government, Israeli embassy and state-run SNCF rail service deny ordering any such discrimination. 

But SNCF subsidiary company Itiremia is holding an investigation.
