Austria -Austrian Airlines dispute might go to court -May 18, 2012

The dispute at Austrian Airlines created by the management decisions to opt out from the existing collective agreement and to transfer the workforce to the cheaper agreement of subsidiary Tyrolean enters a new stage. The planned reform will come into effect on 1 July unless executive board and works council find an alternative solution in the coming weeks. Protest of the workforce has led to cancellation of flights. The trade union vida is considering juridical steps to declare the transfer null and void. Other demands are the respect for the existing agreements and the right for individual employees to oppose the planned company transfer.
