Netherlands -KLM to freeze salaries -June 7, 2012

Airline KLM, part of the Air France - KLM group, has announced a freeze of salaries until 2015 to avoid layoffs whilst cutting back a 115 million euro in three years’ time. Partner company Air France also announced cut backs including 5000 redundancies. The company furthermore stated it wants to reduce holiday allowances and waiting time on long flights. Trade unions have expressed their disagreement with the pay freeze but stated that their priorities will be that the burden of the cuts will be fairly shared and to avoid involuntary redundancies.
