MANNING THE BARRICADES

Employees of the French-US telecommunications equipment manufacturer Alcatel-Lucent build a barricade with sand bags during a protest against the company’s restructuring plans involving 900 job cuts on Friday in front of the plant of Orvault, France. The company, which announced last month that it planned another 10,000 job cuts in two years as it tries to reduce costs and refocus its business, said it had an operating profit of 2.6 percent of sales in the third quarter.Nov 10, 2013
