Taipei, May 30 (CNA) The management of China Airlines (CAL), Taiwan’s largest carrier, sent a letter to company staff Monday, urging them to take the side of the company rather than their unions in facing the challenges ahead.
The letter came in response to reports that some CAL staff are mulling strike action to coincide with the Dragon Boat Festival, which falls on June 9 this year, when air traffic is expected to be busy.
CAL Chairman Sun Hung-hsiang (孫洪祥) and CAL President Chang Yu-hern (張有恆) said in the letter that “as members of CAL, we have to insist on flight safety and service.”
They urged the staff to remain on the job and not cause passengers to be concerned. [FULL STORY]
