After large scale job cuts at Czech Airlines were reported last month (see September 2014 newsletter), the airline now intends to lower pilots’ wages from 1 January 2015. Experienced pilots allegedly will lose up to 30% of their salaries. Trade union representatives said that while the need for wage cuts is understandable, their size and the targeting of experienced pilots will have negative consequences. Union officials said tenured captains have many options for employment at better pay levels with other airlines and may be expected to leave to company following the wage cuts. Contrary to the other flight crew, who will go on strike on 30 October, the pilots have not threatened with strike action yet.
