Air France addresses employee concerns

Air France has presented concrete measures approved by the company´s board of directors, to the Air France Central Works Council to respond to the concerns expressed by employees during staff consultation, the company said.

These measures, structured around two priorities, will be implemented immediately.

Immediate measures will be taken to improve the daily lives of staff. Management has decided to provide a budget this summer and wants to take rapid action to provide concrete solutions to problems that affect the daily lives of staff to enable them to provide optimum service for customers in the best possible conditions. Among the first measures to be implemented is the renovation of ramp facilities at Orly and an increase in the availability of rest areas for aircrew at Air France premises.

A new approach to staff concerns and dialogue, will be implemented to provide concrete solutions to staff expectations. The implementation of these measures will involve management, staff representatives and volunteer staff as well as stakeholders from outside the company.
