TAIPEI (Taiwan News) – After China Airlines agreed to most demands by striking flight 6764473attendants, its affiliate Mandarin Airlines could face similar action, reports said Saturday.

The Mandarin Airlines professional union is reportedly scheduled to hold its final round of talks with management on July 7, and its members are facing issues similar to the ones that led to Friday’s CAL strike, according to the Chinese-language Apple Daily.

Problems included the location for pilots to report to work being moved from Taipei Songshan Airport to Taiwan Taoyuan International Airport, overtime for flight attendants, ground staff having to work shifts of colleagues leading to up to 46 hours of overwork per month, and a serious wage discrepancy between Mandarin and CAL with lower pay for the same work, union chairman Wu Yen-hsien said.     [FULL  STORY]
