China Airlines (CAL) said Sunday that it would file criminal and civil lawsuits against the Taoyuan
Flight Attendants Union for organizing a demonstration Friday in which protesters threw eggs at its Taipei headquarters.
In a statement released Sunday, CAL said it would take legal action against the Taoyuan Flight Attendants Union in order to defend the company’s “reputation and the rights of the customers.”
On Friday, hundreds of protesters — mainly flight attendants and supporters — pelted the airline’s headquarters with eggs, accusing CAL of failing to honor an agreement on working conditions.
CAL on Sunday said the egg pelting was illegal and “out of order.”
The airlines said the achievements of the company were the result of its 12,000 employees and their predecessors.
“Its substantial development and the rights of all employees should not be jeopardized by a minority of individuals,” according to the statement. [FULL STORY]
