Portugal -Head of pilots’ union resigns after controversial strike -June 04, 2015

The strike, however, did not receive the anticipated broad support from other TAP employees and customers.

The head of the pilots union resigned in the wake of a controversial 10 day strike at TAP Portugal and Portugalia, reported in last month’s newsletter. In the strike, pilots demanded shares of up to 20 percent in the capital of the airline that is being privatised, which was guaranteed to them in an old agreement. The strike, however, did not receive the anticipated broad support from other TAP employees and customers, who felt the pilots were jeopardising the viability of the struggling airline.
