On 8 August, the pilots, flight crew and technicians of Croatia Airlines, Croatian Airlines, will enter strike from 6 am on the morning, aviation workers’ union said on Friday.
The work stoppage lasts until the management fails to make the claims – they added.
Employees of a state-owned company require higher wages, better working conditions, and new collective bargaining.
The Board of Directors of Croatia Airlines has warned trade unions and all workers in a communication to think well about the consequences of a stoppage at this moment for the company.
As it was written, in the first half financial year of this year it is clear that the company’s turnover and the number of passengers have increased, and its losses have decreased by 2017. Thanks to the summer months, Croatia Airlines is able to maintain its full-year operation and provide workers with salaries, they said in the text.
According to the company, in the middle of the tourist season, only the first day of the strike affects about 7,000 passengers, and every day 800,000 euros are lost to the company.
Croatia Airlines has long been struggling with liquidity problems. With years of major interruption, Zagreb has been looking for a strategic partner for the company for the time being unsuccessful.
