The travel company was one of the first to receive government aid in the billions. The intended job cuts at the subsidiary Tuifly are angry with the VC. Now it is hoped that the control committee will pull the emergency brake.
The German pilots' union Vereinigung Cockpit appeals to the supervisory board of Tui AG that it should reject the halving of the Tuifly fleet planned by the management board and the associated job cuts. The representatives of the pilots also point out that state aid must be used to secure jobs and not to reduce them.
“Vote against your board's plans for Tuifly! We urge you to take your responsibility towards everyone involved and to take the interests of the workforce, customers, society and shareholders equally into account. The good reputation of TUI, especially in politics, must not be jeopardized by making economically extremely questionable and socially irresponsible decisions, ”said VC President Markus Wahl.
Tui AG was one of the first recipients of government loans in the billions during the Corona crisis. The Vereinigung Cockpit now sees the risk that the company would jeopardize access to further assistance by making hasty decisions. The plans of the Tui board would have already met with considerable criticism in politics. "The round table at Lower Saxony's Minister of Economic Affairs, Althusmann, showed that the state will not stand idly by as German jobs are being cut," the VC said in a broadcast.
