The joint union front sent a strike notice to the management of Brussels Airlines. This is what the unions say. Conciliation talk about the workload broke out among cabin crew last week. However, there is no intention of punishing travelers,” said Olivier van Kamp of the Socialist Workers’ Union.
The notice is valid for an indefinite period of time. The company had previously proposed twenty hiring, but that’s not enough for unions to lighten the workload. Consultations last Thursday yielded nothing.
“The management categorically refuses to negotiate structural solutions to improve the collective labor agreements imposed by Lufthansa in 2020,” it said in a statement issued by the joint union front. Unions and their representatives will now inform employees. They have been under pressure since the beginning of the summer, after a long period of economic unemployment. As a result, their purchasing power has fallen dramatically.”
From August 26
Only after consulting with supporters will it be clear whether and which measures will be taken. A strike is possible, although unions do not prefer it. Any promotions are only available as of August 26th. “There is no intention of punishing travelers,” said Olivier van Kamp of the socialist trade union.
We can only regret this situation and ask Lufthansa, which is solely responsible for this situation, to take responsibility. We need to listen more and show respect to Brussels Airlines employees,” the unions said.
Brussels Airlines management has already announced that it will continue to seek consultations in order to find solutions. Condemns “any social action that could harm clients and affect the workload of other employees.” It seems that “the company’s financial stability should not be jeopardized either.”
