After lengthy negotiations, the German holiday airline Tuifly and the pilots' union Vereinigung Cockpit were able to agree on a collective agreement to cushion the restructuring. Nevertheless, according to the VC, around 130 pilots are still at risk of losing their jobs.
After weeks of mediation, it was agreed that the number of protected personnel in the cockpit area would be increased to 370. Tuifly currently employs around 500 pilots, so that, according to the union, the jobs of around 130 pilots are shaking. Important collective agreements such as the collective wage agreement and the general collective agreement are frozen until 2025 and 2026 respectively.
“A restructuring in the midst of the greatest crisis in aviation since World War II - it wasn't the very best prerequisites for finding socially acceptable solutions. Those involved did not make it easy for themselves and, over weeks and months to the end, explored all options and limits in extremely difficult talks in many night negotiations, ”said Marcel Gröls, tariff chief of the Vereinigung Cockpit. The union expects that these painful concessions will not be forgotten in the future and the company remembers that the pilots stand by your company in the crisis.
