PARIS (Reuters) - France's trade union has served a strike notice at ExxonMobil's 240,000 barrel per day Port Jerome refinery in a dispute over annual salary negotiations, a union official said.

The strike notice was served for Thursday at 2200 (2100 GMT) if management did not meet their wage demands for 2016, Christophe Aubert, a CGT union official told Reuters.

"We held negotiations late week and there was a final proposal from management. An agreement is expected to be signed on Friday," Aubert said.

"We have made another proposal to renegotiate salaries, if there is no response from management, we have served a strike notice to start on Thursday," he said, adding that the union will meet management early on Thursday.
