TK Flight Crews To Strike For One Day?

Thu Aug 17, 2006 2:26 am

I have read about this in some Turkish papers. The union decided to have a strike for one day only (the date yet to be decided). It says this could be any day starting after tomorrow.
Does anyone have any more info? I have a TK flight coming up this week, I hope this is not too serious.

I thought Pilotaydin or Wing could have replied to this better but as far as I can see, it has do to with long working hours for the pilots and the FA's.

Hava-Is the main Turkish civil aviation union which represents about 11,000 employees including cockpit and cabin crews at Turkish Airlines has been in acrimonious contract talks with THY which have dragged on for many months.

Accordingly as per the labor laws, the union is within it rights under such circumstances to call a partial one-day work stoppage which they have intimated they plan to do in the very near future.
