EU sources -Two days of strike in the air -January 20, 2014

The European Transport Federation of trade unions (ETF) called for a European Action Day to demand a social dimension as part of a raft of industry reform proposals under the title Single European Sky. Controllers will hold parallel walkouts, rallies, meetings and strikes across Europe calling on the European Parliament to stop a ‘never-ending process of liberalisation and cost cutting in the ATM industry’. The Air Traffic Controllers European Unions Coordination (ATCEUC) has planned a strike on 29 January. The actions coincide with a vote on 30 January by the Transport Committee of the European Parliament on the package called SES2+ based on market principles, top-down approach and cost reductions which the ETF claims will jeopardise safety and the number and quality of jobs.
