Air France threatens strike action

Air France threatens strike action - The president of Air France's pilots union has warned that if the next CEO doesn't resume discussions over pay then the company will face 15 more days of strike.  Air France has not had a CEO since early May. In July, other unions representing Air France workers also threatened to ground more flights in September as a pay dispute with the airline's bosses continues. At the beginning of August it was revealed that the 15 days of strike held from February to May saw profits nosedive by €335 million. The strikes also prompted the government's economy minister to warn that the future of the airline was at stake. Air France had offered staff a general wage increase of seven percent over four years from 2018 to 2021 in addition to the individual increases of around one percent in 2018. However unions have been demanding an immediate wage increase of 5.1 percent, after initially demanding a six percent rise.
