Eurotunnel services between the U.K. and France have been suspended due to a call for strike action by representatives of Eurotunnel's French site staff. This development comes just days before the start of the busy Christmas holiday season, posing a potential threat to the travel plans of thousands of people.

Getlink, the company responsible for operating the Channel Tunnel and the Eurotunnel undersea link, has announced that the strike action has resulted in a complete interruption of service and the closure of terminals in both France and the U.K. As a result, Eurotunnel advises travelers to make alternative arrangements for their travel needs.

Eurostar, which offers passenger rail services through Eurotunnel, has also been affected by the strike action. They have had to cancel most of their scheduled services for Thursday. These cancellations are a direct result of the strike action carried out by Eurotunnel staff.

The strike action has been triggered by trade unions' rejection of a bonus of EUR1,000 ($1,094) proposed by management at the end of the year. The unions are demanding that the amount be tripled, leading to the call for strike action.

Getlink stated that they are currently in talks with the unions in an attempt to find a resolution to the situation. However, it remains uncertain how long the disruption will last.

According to Citi analysts, this suspension of services could have a negative impact on Getlink's traffic, especially considering the upcoming holiday season. They advised clients to take note of this potential decline in traffic.
