en greve = on strike

Commuters packed into the few trains and buses still running and flights through Paris airports were canceled Tuesday as a broad one-day strike to protest the government's economic and labor policies disrupted transportation across France.

I've witnessed smaller strikes in Paris, but none of this magnitude. Labor unions are nearly dead in the United States, but are alive and kicking in France. I wonder how all those strikers get home after the strike if no transportation is available. Hmmm.
