TAIPEI (Taiwan News) — China Airlines president Hsieh Shih-chien (謝世謙) led a press conference of seven company representatives Monday afternoon regarding disagreements over working conditions with the Pilot’s Union.

Taoyuan International Airport’s Pilot’s Union announced a potential Lunar New Year strike earlier this month. China Airlines said the company cannot know if it will go ahead or not.

Hsieh said if a strike does happen, China Airlines cannot guarantee it will definitely transport passengers to their destinations on time, but will undertake appropriate measures and make its best effort to see all reach their destinations.

Hsieh also mentioned that the union launched 21 labor disputes last year, five of which have been resolved. The other issues were left to be dealt with in further talks.
