Poland - Tensions rise at LOT airlines - March 25, 2010

From coming April on, LOT Polish Airlines plans to change its labour and wage system, which according to the company's trade unions will imply lower wages. Neither the Transport Pilots Trade Union nor the Trade Union of Cabin Crew are willing to accept the proposed changes and are now in a dispute with the airline's management. Strikes seem imminent, as the unions do not rule out strike action. By March 30, the matter will be taken up by the Tripartite Commission (KT).
