Air France has issued this statement:
Air France on February 19 signed a new pilot staff category agreement with the SNPL. This agreement remains open for signature until February 22, 2019.
It is already valid as the SNPL represents 75.9% of the votes cast in favour of the pilot representative unions.
“I wish to thank the pilots for massively approving this agreement. This agreement forms the basis of a strong culture that acknowledges their leadership. After the Mandatory Annual Negotiation (NAO) agreements already signed with all our stakeholders, Air France-KLM is now in a position to begin implementing more ambitious plans and winning back its European leadership position”, stated Benjamin Smith.
The SNPL has also signed the inter-category pay agreement of October 19, 2018.
These agreements provides the flexibility required to support Air France’s new ambition while setting out measures to improve flight safety, the commercial strategy, operational performance, and pilots’ daily lives and pay.
