Netherlands - Cabin crew opposes reduction of staff - December 31, 2017

Trade union FNV has announced that KLM's cabin crew will be striking for 24 hours on 8 January 2018. FNV announced the strike more than a month in advance to give KLM chance to take security measures and to inform passengers and other airlines. The cabin crew members are striking against the so-called -1CA measure, which was implemented over a year ago. KLM decided to send one fewer cabin crew member on a number of long distance flights. This will be the longest cabin crew strike in the 98-year history of KLM. According to FNV, the strike can be prevented if KLM reverses the -1CA measure.
