ETUC fears Low Fares Airlines induces race to the bottom

13 Mar 2015

At its Executive Committee meeting on 10 March, the ETUC, in coordination with the ETF, adopted a declaration on low fares airlines in which the Confederation expresses its concern these companies undermine collective bargaining. The declaration refers to recent disputes in Norway and Denmark demonstrating those companies’ opposition and actions to undermine the fundamental right of workers to negotiate and agree on working conditions and wages with their employer. The European Trade Union Confederation calls for imminent better and adapted regulation of the European airline sector to stop the race to the bottom.
