The strike at Air France will "continue", announces the SNPL because "the proposal of the direction is a real trompe-l'oeil"

The three days of negotiations will not have been enough. The SNPL, the main pilots' union at Air France, was outraged Tuesday, April 17 proposals made by the management of the company Monday night. Before the two new strike days, Tuesday 17 and Wednesday 18 April , Air France executives proposed a wage increase of 2% for 2018, then 5% between 2019 and 2021.

Immediate increase of 5.1%

"The proposal of management is a real sham, it is to pass future increases in place of past increases and wage freeze that we had for six years," said Philippe Evain , president of the SNPL, on France Inter.
According to the pilot, "the account is not there" . The Inter requires a general and immediate increase of 5.1%, which it says would offset the wage freeze in place since 2011.
The strike will not only continue, but of course it will harden. It's unmissable. Philippe Evain SNPL Presidentat France Inter
The inter-union must meet in the days. In the meantime, the notices filed for April 18, 23 and 24 are maintained. The management of Air France is waiting for a response to his proposal by Friday noon. She believes that her proposals are "strong and economically sustainable" . Until now, it only accepted a wage increase of 1% in 2018 and then a smooth 3.6% increase between 2019 and 2021.
"The current strikes have serious consequences for the company, writes the management of Air France in a statement , they jeopardize the future of the company." It considers that the financial loss of the first nine days of strike, 18 April included, amounted to 220 million euros. Air France plans to provide 70% of its flights on Tuesday, but only 55% of its long-haul flights.
