Netherlands - Easyjet pilot strike continues - August 31, 2016

EasyJet pilots stationed in Amsterdam will continue with a series of strikes, pilots union VNV announced. The pilots are striking for a better collective bargaining agreement. They want guaranteed sick leave pay, more time to rest between flights and a better pension regulation. The notification for the strike will be giving late in order to prevent EasyJet hiring temporary pilots to fly during the actions, as they did in a previous labour dispute. More actions will follow if the airline does not address the pilots’ demands.
