Key points about this news item French flights disrupted by Easyjet cabin crew strikes

French Easyjet cabin crew have called a second strike over New Year 2014


Easyjet strike continues in France

Following a two day strike by French Easyjet cabin crew over 25th and 26th December, a further strike has been announced for the 31st December and 1st January 2015.


The initial strike over Christmas caused around forty flights in France to be cancelled, but would have been more except that the airline does not fly on Christmas Day.  The newly announced strike will affect even more flights, but as during the first strike, expect Easyjet to fly in cabin crews from other bases to minimise the effect.


The French Easyjet cabin crew are demanding a larger share of Easyjet’s profits for employees, improved staff benefits and improvements to work schedules.  The unions have claimed that Easyjet’s operating profit has increased by around twenty percent, but staff benefits have not been increased.  Easyjet claims that following above inflation pay rises, their cabin crew are some of the best paid in France.


Around six hundred cabin crew are employed by Easyjet in France and are represented by two main unions, the SNPNC–FO and UNAC.  According to the unions, the cabin crew schedules can sometimes be changed up to twenty times during one month, making planning  and family life difficult.  Francois Bacchetta, CEO of Easyjet for France, said that he understood the frustration of personnel and that the company was working towards a solution on this very complex matter.


With eighteen operating bases around France, Easyjet carries a large number of passengers on a daily basis and any strike will cause large scale disruption both internally in France and to flights heading in and out of France.
