EUROPEAN CABIN CREW ASSOCIATION
Today EurECCA, the European Cabin Crew Association, declares its full solidarity with the member union UFO from Germany for the upcoming action within Deutsche Lufthansa. After two years of intense negotiations over pension funds, UFO had to learn that the management of Lufthansa is not willing to make a deal. An agreement that would be a fair and sustainable compromise for all those affected, proposed by UFO, is on the table. The management decided not to take it.
EurECCA supports the position of the representatives of the two national cabin crew unions, and EurECCA-members SNPNC and UNSA, that condemn the physical violence two senior Air France executives suffered at the hands of some protesters.
In early September, the annual conference of the European annual Cabin Crew Association EurECCA took place. Around 40 delegates from the member countries of EurECCA- unions had come into the Portuguese SNPVAC office to discuss current internal issues as well as European aviation matters.
It was with great satisfaction that the Portuguese Government announced their choice of the potential buyer of TAP-SGPS, Mr. David Neeleman.
We, the board of SNPVAC deeply regret the satisfaction and the choice to sell.
What we want is for TAP to remain in the hands of the Portuguese State and that it continues to be our flagship airline, the one that carries the name and the quality of Portugal around the world.
