Taipei-based Mandarin Airlines (華信航空) avoided a strike after 10 hours of negotiations yesterday, Apple Daily reported. The labor dispute with the union representing flight attendants and staff was resolved at 10:00 last night, though no details of the agreement were announced.
The agreement reportedly reached a consensus on basic wages and allowances for staff.
The Ministry of Labor and Civil Aviation Authority aided in the negotiations to avoid another airline strike that could strand passengers in Taiwan. In June, China Airlines (CAL) flight attendants went on strike and even protested outside the company’s headquarters on Nanjing East Rd., blocking traffic. The CAL strike led to flight cancellations and disgruntled travelers.
