Air France Strike Called for 3rd Week of Euro 2016

With the European football championships in France in full swing, Air France pilots are set to go on strike from June 24 to 27, three major unions told AFP.
The unions said they were downing tools after management made “very vague promises” in negotiations during the last strike between June 11 and 14.
Air France management said it “deplored” the latest strike threat, condemning the unions for “unreasonable demands” incompatible with the “responsible running of a business”.
Last week’s strike, which grounded around 20% of flights, mainly to mid-range destinations, generated losses of €40 million, it added.
Pilots say that new pay rules decided by management in June would lower their salaries by five percent.
Management said only a quarter of pilots went on strike earlier this month but unions said the figure was more like seven in 10.
The latest strike is the latest industrial action to hit France, which has been gripped by social unrest over a series of disputed labor reforms the Socialist government of President Francois Hollande is trying to force through.
