France - Week-long strike of Air France stewards - August 31, 2016

The SNPNC and the Unsa-PNC unions organised a strike of Air France stewards from July 27 to August 2. The two unions, which represent around 45 percent of the company's stewards and airhostesses, called for the strike after failed negotiations with the new CEO of Air France–KLM. The third largest union, Unac with 22 percent of workers, also had representatives at the meeting but decided to postpone their call to action until October. The flight attendants and flight assistants went on strike, which forced Air France to suspend around 1,000 flights, to demand a larger period for the expiry of their working contracts.
