KLM cabin staff reject offer in labour dispute

22nd Jun 2007

KLM cabin staff have rejected the airline’s final offer in a dispute over their general workers agreement.This is according to the union FNV Bondgenoten who posted a statement on their website this Friday.

The union claims that the 8,500 employees are overworked due to past cost-cutting measures and says KLM’s latest offer has not addressed the situation to their satisfaction.

According to media sources a letter will be sent by the union to KLM next week in which a new ultimatum will be issued. KLM will have a week to react. If demands are not met, then strikes may be called.

If a strike is called it could be the first labour action ever taken by KLM cabin crew.
