In the note, the union recalled that, since the last assembly, on March 9, the members of this airline have been mandated "to continue the negotiation process and to resort to any means of struggle that is considered pertinent, including the last resort: the right to strike".
"Taking into account the current moment of the negotiations, the impasse experienced and the intransigent and incomprehensible posture on the part of easyJet, a letter was sent to the company, to the Ministry of Infrastructure, Ministry of Labour, Solidarity and Social Security, Ministry of Economy and Mar and DGERT, communicating a strike notice for the 1st, 2nd and 3rd of April 2023", indicated the SNPVAC.
The union structure also said that "a parliamentary round was also held, in order to expose the current situation of easyJet crew members to political parties".
"We are aware of what this prior notice represents", they stressed, indicating that they hope "that the company is also aware of all its implications".
In the pre-notice of the strike, the SNPVAC indicated that, in these three days, the strike "covers all flights carried out by easyJet, as well as for the other services to which the cabin crew are assigned", whose hours "of presentation occur in national territory starting at 00:01 on April 1st and ending at 24:00 on April 3rd, 2023".
On the other hand, the union understands that "the concept of imperative needs is only confined to the Autonomous Regions of the Azores and Madeira, for reasons of national cohesion and isolation of the populations for whom this means of transport is essential".
