Talks today between management and the Air France unions (regarding job cuts etc) have broken down paving the way for possible industrial action.

News report in French language:

A day of action has been called for October 5 when unions will hold a demonstration in front of Air France’s HQ between 1000 and 1400hrs.

Something which I’ve never before seen at other major airlines is that the union has put together a You Tube video “Mobilisons-Nous le 5 October 2015” where staff show their rejection of management demands.

Can you imagine such a thing happening at Singapore Airlines ?
