Taipei, July 5 (CNA) About 60 members of the Taoyuan Flight Attendants Union (TFAU) on Friday marched from Taoyuan to Taipei to deliver a petition to the Presidential Office in Taipei, asking the president to show support for flight attendants in their ongoing strike.

"We are not asking the president to fight for our benefits but to help supervise businesses and protect our labor rights," said Lin Yu-chia (林昱嘉), a TFAU director and EVA Air flight attendant.

After marching 27 kilometers from outside EVA Airways' corporate headquarters where the striking flight attendants are holding out, Lin and fellow union members delivered their petition and 30 letters from EVA Air flight attendants to a Presidential Office representative.

The representative said their appeals, which reminded Tsai that she supported striking China Airlines flight attendants in 2016 and asked that she stand on the side of justice, will be passed on to the president.    [FULL  STORY]
