Threatened four-day strike by French air unions
November 2nd, 2010 by elisa

French strike action continues as French airline staff unions have called for a four-day strike from 5th November. The strike is in protest of a new legislation that reduces discounts on some plane tickets as staff will have to pay tax on them.

Both the flight attendants’ union and the France pilots’ union have called for a strike from 5th-8th November 5. Separately, six unions at Air France have called for a strike on 4th November against president Nicolas Sarkozy’s recently approved pension reform.

The last French strikes were by air traffic controllersand disrupted many flights from the UK and France. This sparked strong words from Ryanair which called upon the EU to change legislation for air traffic controllers rights to strike.
