Air France reaches agreement with unions

Air France has reached and signed agreement with representative unions CFDT, CFE-CGC/UNAC, FO/SNPNC, SPAF and UNSA aérien Air France (both ground staff and cabin crew components) regarding employee compensation.

These unions represent 76.4 per cent of the employees who voted in the last union elections.

The key provisions of the agreement include a general pay increase of two per cent, retroactive to 1 January, 2018, and a general pay increase of two per cent on 1 January, 2019.

Air France-KLM and Air France chief executive officer, Benjamin Smith said: “I would like to thank everyone involved at Air France for the quality of our discussions over the past few weeks, and for the trust that has prevailed throughout.

“This way of working between all parties provides Air France and the Air France-KLM Group with a new perspective going forward, and it is my hope that it will ensure the future success of our airlines.”

The next round of annual salary negotiations will begin with all representative unions in October 2019. Discussions will be based on the global economic environment, the present situation of the Air France-KLM Group, as well as the company’s economic performance.
