Staff strike at Paris hotel before Cruise presser

Some 60 employees at the Ritz Hotel in Paris went on strike Tuesday, before the upmarket establishment hosted a publicity media conference by Tom Cruise.
The Workers’ Force union said in a statement that the employees walked off the job to protest changes to their contracts by management.

The management of the hotel confirmed the strike to Agence France Presse and said it was not affecting service to its guests.

Tom Cruise was due to speak to reporters in a salon in the hotel on Wednesday to promote his latest movie, “Mission Impossible 3”.
