Hungary - Warning strike at Malév - March 29, 2011

On 23 March, pilots and flight attendants of the Hungarian airline company Malév staged a two-hour warning strike to put pressure on an agreement on more favourable rest hours. Tamás Óvári, president of the Hungarian Airline Pilots' Association (Hunalpa), reiterated that the strike was not about higher wages, but only to reach an agreement on rest hours. The union demand is that the minimum time of rest for the crew be extended by two hours relative to the minimum under European Union rules (after 12 hours of work).
