Air France Deplores The Call For Strike Action By Two Cabin Crew Unions At The Height Of The Summer Holiday Period

Published on : Saturday, July 23, 2016

Air France-KLMAir France deplores the call for strike action by two cabin crew unions (SNPNC-FO and UNSA-PNC) for the period from 27 July to 2 August, when Air France management had proposed a favourable agreement.

On Friday morning, management presented the cabin crew unions with a proposal to clarify and complete the draft cabin crew collective agreement for the period from November 2016 to March 2018.

 

In addition to the improvements contained in the draft agreement, this new proposal contains several advances, which respond to a large extent to the demands made by both the UNAC, which postponed its strike notice several days ago, the UNSA PNC and the SNPNC/FO.

 

 

Talks between management and cabin crew unions continued until late into the night on Thursday.

 

 

It is too soon to know the precise impact of this strike action on the flight schedule. Based on the application of the Diard law, Air France will have accurate information to enable it to inform customers 24 hours before their departure.

 

 

The company is mobilized to ensure the majority of its long-haul schedule during this period. There may be more disruption on the short and medium-haul networks. Air France flights operated by another airline, including HOP!, KLM and Delta, as well as Transavia flights, are not affected by this strike action.

 

 

“Air France management has gone as far as it could go with the social dialogue, in a spirit of compromise and responsibility with regard to the future of the company and all its staff. The call for strike action is irresponsible in this context and comes at the worst possible time for our customers” said Frédéric Gagey, Air France CEO.
