PARIS (Reuters) – Unions at state-owned utility EDF <EDF.PA> said on Saturday they will go on strike again on Oct. 17 as the French government does not intend to withdraw a restructuring plan.

More than a third of EDF’s French workforce went on strike on Sept. 19 in protest against government plans that could open part of EDF’s business to more private investment.
