The latest work stoppages come after easyJet cabin crew in Spain reached a pay agreement and cancelled further strikes
According to the union representing the carrier’s pilots in Spain, the work stoppages are a last resort after months of failed negotiations to alter pay rates, contracts and working conditions.
“This is the last possible recourse, as all attempts by the pilots’ representatives to reach an agreement have failed,” SEPLA said.
Although the airline claims that talks are ongoing, the union said that negotiations have reached a stale mate after six months of attempts to bring working conditions in Spain up to the level enjoyed by easyJet pilots in other parts of Europe.
Through a statement, SEPLA explained that “the only aim of the union section in easyJet is to recover the working conditions that the pilots had in 2019, now that the number of flights is very similar to what it was two years ago, as well as to resume negotiations for the signing of the new agreement”.
