Signature of pay agreement for Air France ground staff
Air France has signed a new agreement for 2019 with the unions CFDT, CFE-CGC, FO and UNSA aérien Air France, representing its ground staff.
The agreement signed today with unions representing ground staff reinforces the new kind of social dialogue implemented within Air France since last September.
This agreement provides for individual increases of 1.8%, an allocation of 0.1% to finance exceptional individual bonuses thus providing additional ways to recognize performance, easier payment of overtime in 2019, and the payout of banked hours, up to a maximum of 35 hours.
For ground staff, this is in addition to the provisions of the inter-category pay agreement dated October 19, which in particular provides for a general increase of 2% for 2019 for all Air France employees, effective January 1.
"I am delighted with this agreement,” said Benjamin Smith, CEO of Air France-KLM Group, “which represents a new step forward. Together with yesterday's signing of the agreement with Air France cabin crew, this is proof of our dedication to re-establishing trust with all Air France employees, an essential condition for our company's success and to the benefit of all stakeholders. I would like to thank all the Air France teams and union partners whose commitment, dedication, and mutual respect continues to ensure our company's bright future."
