Love the speculation by some of the members here, many talking about things they have no clue about. Without going into details, which at the moment are not public.
1) Yes the job cuts will be by an ERE (early retirement). 58 and over for most of the company employees. (TMAs) Mechanics from 62 and over.
will present the best results in their history but only due to the sale of Amadeus. According to management if we don't take measures now, next year we would begin to be in the red.
3) Many of the measures will affect TCPs (cabin crew) and pilots and most are aimed at getting them to fly more for the same money.
4) Yes it is hard to fire an IB
employee ( thank god for that) but not impossible. The company can use the same tool we have to protect our selves. (our convenio) to apply against a worker who does not comply.
5) All areas of the company will be affected some more than others.
compares itself (cost wise) with the majors KLM, AF
and productivity wise our pilots and cabin crews are above market price specially the cabin crew.
We will defend our rights as workers but obviously we will always be willing to negotiate with the company those measures that will ensure our jobs and standards of living are maintained.
By the way there will still be work available for those wishing to join the company as some of those retiring will be replaced with new labour.
