New China Airlines chairman Ho Nuan-hsuan (何煖軒) and an Executive Yuan official
yesterday criticized former company president Chang Yu-hern (張有恆) for refusing to accept a Cabinet suggestion to make concessions to flight attendants, and accused him of refusing to answer his telephone calls.
Ho told a news conference yesterday that Chang had refused a request to immediately drop company requirements that flight attendants report to work at Taiwan Taoyuan International Airport late on Thursday night following the announcement of the strike.
“I sent him a text message at 6:31pm asking him to address the matter in accordance with the results of my talks with the Executive Yuan, but he did not accept what I told him,” Ho said. “In addition, when I called him, he did not pick up and also did not return my call. He did not even let me know the results of the firm’s internal meeting on addressing the strike.” [FULL STORY]
