The Taoyuan Flight Attendants’ Union yesterday responded to questions about the breakdown ofstrike negotiations on Saturday, saying that the vote it held with union members never implied that the strike was over.
The vote simply ensured that the company’s proposal was considered by all employees democratically, it said.
Members of the public had been asking if the vote was “just an act,” but this was not the case, the union said.
Union members were asked whether they agreed with a proposal made by EVA Airways management on Friday, and if they disagreed, whether they would continue the strike in accordance with Article 11 of the union’s strike regulations, the union said. [FULL STORY]
