FRANCE-POLITICS-STEEL-LABOUR-RESTRUCTURING-ARCELORMITTAL

French CFDT union representative Edouard Martin (C) speaks to journalists, surrounded by ArcelorMittal workers, after listening to the speech of French Prime Minister on French TV, on November 30, 2012, in Florange. France asserted that an investor was ready and willing to put 400 million euros ($515 million) into a steel plant at the centre of a dispute between the owner ArcelorMittal and the government. The Socialist administration has threatened to nationalise the Florange plant in northeastern France if Mittal goes ahead with plans to close permanently two blast furnaces on the site that have been inactive for over a year.
