Industrial action is affecting French Polynesia.

Almost half the employees of the public transport companies have gone on strike for better pay, impacting on bus services in Tahiti.

Hospital doctors have also gone on strike amid disagreement over their grading.

The territorial government has refused to recognise professional experience which unions say will see some new doctors' ranking being downgraded.
