The Travel Agent Association of Taiwan is considering whether to hold a protest tomorrow against EVAAirways (長榮航空) and its flight attendants who are on strike.
EVA flight attendants launched industrial action at 4pm on Thursday after negotiations with airline management broke down earlier in the day.
Association members plan to call a meeting tomorrow to discuss what the next step should be in response to the strike, association chairman Hsiao Po-jen (蕭博仁) said yesterday, adding that they do not rule out mobilizing more than 500 people for a demonstration in front of the airline’s headquarters in Taoyuan’s Nankan District (南崁) to protest the company and the striking flight attendants.
“We hope the airline and the flight attendants can resume talks soon,” Hsiao said. FULL STORY]
