Alitalia pilots agree to rescue plan
Issued on: Modified:
Alitalia pilots agreed to a rescue package proposed by the Italian Air Company Investor group, allowing 900 Alitalia captains to have special contracts.
Alitalia pilots agreed to a rescue package for the airline proposed by the Italian Air Company investor group, ANSA news agency reported Saturday.
The agreement which settles issues such as the pilots' work contract was backed by the four main trade unions after nearly 12 hours of uninterrupted negotiations with the government.
Alitalia's 900 captains will have contracts that differ from those of the other staff members, ANSA said, while other pilots' contracts will be the same as those of the rest of the airline personnel.
Talks with the airline's flight attendants who have not agreed to the package will be held on Monday.
