Pilots union SNPL called off a strike scheduled to run until 30 May after speaking to transport minister Cuvillier. The union protest was aimed to protest against a 2012 law imposing a 48 hour notice period on transport workers who want to strike. The union reports that the notice period has been used by airlines to assign foreign pilots to striking workers’ shifts. In the meeting with the transport minister, SNPL got assurances that the government considers these practices as strike breaking activities interfering with fundamental trade union rights and will counteract it in the future.
