Air Antilles hostesses and stewards strike just before Christmas

The pilots of Air Antilles and Air Guyane also filed a notice on these same dates in mid-November.
“While the hostesses and stewards of Air Antilles benefit from one of the lowest salaries in the airline sector, management has asked them to reduce it further”, denounces the union in a press release. He also insists on the problems concerning “the health and safety of employees” who undergo “pressures” and must be available at all times without “respecting the family and personal organization” of each.

The SNPNC-FO, which had already launched a strike movement in February 2021, describes a “harmful social dialogue” within the regional company based in Point-à-Pitre (Guadeloupe) and threatens to extend the strike beyond the December 22.
The threat of social conflicts during the end of year celebrations weighs on several companies in France such as Air France or the French subsidiary of EasyJet.

Air Antilles is a subsidiary of the Interregional Express Airline (Cairo), based in Guyana. It serves the islands of the French West Indies, Haiti, the Dominican Republic, Puerto Rico, Guyana and Miami (Florida).
It has a fleet of 11 aircraft (ATR-42, ATR-72, DHC-6 Town Otter).
