Air France strike (15-16 april)

The representative of Air France pilots, the SPAF union, announced on Wednesday that cabin crew will call a strike on the 15th and 16th of April against the anti-strike bill currently in advanced stages of processing in the French Parliament. Air France pilots will also join unless the processing of the bill is suspended.

This law aims to prohibit the right to strike in various strategic sectors of the French economy for 60 days. Transport, including air transport, has recently been added. The periods of prohibition cannot exceed 60 days per year and cannot last more than 15 consecutive days, with five days in between.

Main objective is to try to avoid strikes that could affect Christmas, summer, holiday periods, or, as is the case this year, the Olympics being held in the French capital.

The union opposes these measures as they would represent a reduction in their rights to strike to exert pressure on companies.
