last march, Air Europa, which in Spain employs around 3,600 people in-flight -cabin crew and pilots – also as ground staff, mechanics and other support staff, communicated to the trade union sections the implementation of a STRONG due to force majeure, before the situation caused by the pandemic.

In that meeting with the representatives of the workers, in which the company did not specify the time in which it would extend the ERTE, was given a term of seven days to form a negotiating committee for face to define the need and the scope of the record.

Sources of Air Europe insist they have been kept informed workers up to the point that while “the FATE of force majeure does not force constitute monitoring committees , (the company) has kept unchanged its commitment to the dialogue”.
