Press: China Eastern pilots hold hunger strike

Six pilots in a dispute with China Eastern Airlines (CEA) over their resignations held a five-day hunger strike after the airline refused to negotiate with them, the China Daily newspaper reported. An airline employee said Friday the dispute had been resolved.

The pilots - who were not identified - began their hunger strike on June 15 after the airline’s general manager refused to meet them for discussions, the newspaper said in an editorial published Thursday.
