France -Easyjet pilots to strike over company’s failure to share profits -November 24, 2013

Pilots at Easyjet’s French airports have announced a strike action on 25 November to protest the lack of internal profit sharing practices in the company. Earlier this month, Easyjet reported record profits and special dividends for shareholders. Trade union SNPL, which organises 90% of the French Easyjet pilots, said it had requested management to instate internal profit sharing practices as well, but had been ignored. The pilots are now taking industrial action to protest against the lack of wage increases for workers, while shareholders reap the benefits of their labour.
