TAIPEI, Taiwan — China Airlines (CAL) flight attendants on Friday demanded that management
honor promises made during a previous negotiation that had ended the first-ever strike in the nation’s airline industry.
Hundreds of protesters pelted CAL’S Taipei Office signboard with eggs, at the same spot where they had staged a series of protests and an unprecedented overnight sit-in earlier this year.
Friday’ s protest was organized by the Taoyuan Flight Attendants Union and joined by Taiwan Railway Union and other labor organizations.
Five of the seven items agreed to by CAL management and union representatives on June 24 under the supervision of the Labor Minister Kuo Fong-yu (郭芳煜) had been breached or remained unachieved over the last four months, according to Taoyuan Flight Attendants Union Secretary-General Lin Chia-wei (林佳瑋).
Lin sharply rebuked CAL Chairman Ho Nuan-hsuan (何煖軒), calling him a thief.
“Without integrity, the company will not survive,” she said. [FULL STORY]
