Netherlands - Cabin crew KLM wins court case - November 30, 2016

Trade union FNV, acting on behalf of striking cabin crew staff, won a court case that air carrier KLM had brought before court. The company had asked the court to ban further actions as long as mediation of the dispute was going on. Judges also said that it is not mandatory for the trade unions to indicate who will participate in strike actions. For security reasons the trade unions normally inform the company beforehand about strikes. The cabin crew is acting against KLM's plan to reduce the number of crew members on some longer flights.
