Czech Airlines seeks average wage cuts of 40 percent: report

Unions and management of Czech Airlines (ČSA) are at loggerheads over a proposal for staff to take an average wage cut of around 40 percent, the daily Mladá Fronta Dnes reported on Tuesday. A union representative said the previous demand had amounted to a wage cut of around a third. The two sides have been attempting to seal a new collective agreement for a month. The cash strapped airline in October agreed 180 redundancies, mostly from cabin crew and pilots. Management of the still state-controlled carrier had originally called for 300 staff to leave.
