Strikes by airline and ATC employees and unions are on the rise in Europe as workers see airline profits going up and their salaries eroding and now many employees are scrambling to join unions, even ULCC Ryanair now has to deal with unions. From pilots, flight attendants, maintenance to catering workers are uniting together and in May we saw Air France under siege by unions as its stock prices dropped 10% and its CEO quit, unable to get a deal done with his employees. Its time for employees to benefit from these boom days in the industry, the employees deserve a slice of the new profits, its not just about making executives and investors richer anymore. For too long, airline workers made too many sacrifices, especially at LCC, now that those LCC have matured and become highly profitable, the employees want better pay, and that is the reality of the life cycle of LCC's, when employees hit the peak of their pay scales after years of low pay, at some point its their time to be justly rewarded. In North America, employees are getting more money and better deals as well, from DL, AA, UA to Allegiant, Spirit, WestJet, unions are back and higher wages are increasing unit costs, but when an airline makes lots of money, it should share some of that with its employees, no? What's the cost of strikes and its bad PR versus keeping your employees happy with appropriate pay increases, and its not just about highly paid pilots, there are other important employees in an airline beside them as well.
