Thousands of workers in around 40 cities across Europe on Friday protested against planned job cuts at US company General Electric, the international trade union association Industriall said.
An estimated 2,000 to 2,500 people were protesting in front of the company's office in Paris alone.
According to Industriall, demonstrations were taking place in a number of locations in France, Germany, Spain, Austria, Belgium, the Czech Republic, Sweden and Switzerland.
In 2014, GE acquired the energy unit of French company Alstom. Following the purchase, GE is planning to cut 6,500 jobs across Europe.
