Workers at France's hardline CGT union have voted for a 24-hour strike at Nogent-sur-Seine nuclear plant starting Wednesday at 1900 GMT, extending a standoff with the government over labour laws that is also affecting oil refineries.

"It will start tonight at 2100 (1900 GMT) and last 24 hours," CGT spokesman Laurent Langlard said of the move at the plant which is south east of Paris. Workers at other nuclear plants were due to meet on Wednesday to decide on possible further strikes, he said.

On the other hand, workers at other French nuclear plants will meet on Wednesday to decide on possible additional strikes, the CGT spokesman added.
