Czech Airlines hammers out new collective deal with staff: report


A new collective wage agreement has been hammered out between management and workers at Czech Airlines with the help of a mediator. According to unions, the new deal will make good some of the dramatic wage cuts imposed in February when the previous wages and conditions deal expired. A new collective deal has been sought ever since. The ČTK news agency reported that earlier cuts in pay for pilots of around 25% would be around half that amount under the proposed new deal. Airline management have refused to comment on the deal before it is approved by the company board.
