EVA Air and the Taoyuan Flight Attendants’ Union on Friday failed to reach common ground during talks over flight attendant pay and work hours, as well as corporate governance issues, with both sides accusing each other of acting in bad faith.
After the meeting, which was delayed by two hours due to squabbling over whether it should be broadcast live, the union said the airline addressed few of its demands.
The management’s proposals were basically the same as those discussed during the previous round of negotiations last month, which broke down and prompted a vote on whether EVA flight attendants should go on strike, a union representative said.
Despite the disappointing outcome, the two sides agreed to meet again on Wednesday.
