PARIS (Reuters) - Product delivery sendouts are blocked at Esso France's Fos-sur-Mer site in the south, while work continues at the company's northern Port Jerome-Gravenchon site , a CGT union representative said amid a nationwide strikes in the country.

A strike against the government's planned pension reform in France led to a substantial fall in electricity output and halted deliveries from refineries operated by Esso's rival TotalEnergies on Thursday.
