Estonia -No progress in pilot bargaining -April 08, 2014

The state-owned airline has not yet reached a deal on a new collective agreement with its pilots, although the previous contract expired on 1 February 2014.

The state-owned airline has not yet reached a deal on a new collective agreement with its pilots, although the previous contract expired on 1 February 2014. Central question in the negotiations is salary increases, with pilots asking for a 40% increase over the next three years. The Airline Pilots Association stated that the company only offered a 1% increase for the next three years, adding that for them, the main question is the organisation of work and rest periods and system of promotions. These are similar problems that plagued the negotiations at the end of 2012 when a strike was narrowly averted.
