Air France finalizes framework agreements with ground staff, pilots and cabin crew
Published: July 11, 2012
As part of its on-going Transform 2015 efforts to increase economic efficiency by 20%, Air France (AF) has finalized framework agreements with unions representing ground staff, pilots and cabin crew.
The proposed agreement for ground staff has been signed by the CFE-CGC, CFDT and FO unions, representing 46.5% of ground staff. The minimum level required for validation is 30%.
The proposed agreement for pilots was favorably received by the SNPL pilot’s union advisory body, and will shortly be submitted to a referendum of members for validation.
The unions representing commercial cabin crew – UNAC, SNPNC and UNSA – will also submit their proposed agreement to a referendum of members.
AF said it “welcomes the agreements already reached with employee representatives, and looks forward to the rapid conclusion of agreements with organisations representing flight personnel.” It said that dialogue with union representatives “will remain the favoured route for the on-going quest for permanent and structural economic efficiency. These latest proposed agreements therefore mark a new phase in the turnaround of Air France.”
