Air Europa pilots calls for a five-day strike
Unhappy with carrier’s plans to create a new airline, the Sepla will go on strike from 5-9 May.23 April 2008
MADRID - The Spanish Union of Airline Pilots (Sepla) yesterday announced a five-day strike for Air Europa flights from 5-9 May.
The union claims the carrier will violate its collective bargaining agreement if it goes ahead with plans to create a new airline, Universal, whose establishment will "decapitate" the existing agreement.
Barring resolution, the Sepla has threatened another strike 22 days later.
