PARIS, July 1 (AFP) - Air France workers voted to repeat a strike at Paris's Charles de Gaulle airport on Saturday after causing flight delays on Friday in an hours-long stoppage to protest understaffing and to press for pay demands.

Some 30 planes suffered delays of around 20 minutes on Friday but there were no cancellations, airport officials and Air France management said.

Unions said around a third of the ground staff working on the tarmac and in terminal passageways, or 200 workers, took part in the strike which lasted more than three hours.

The renewed stoppage Saturday was to start at 9:00 am (0700 GMT) and would be followed by another vote as to whether to continue the wildcat stoppages.
