September 2014: The (LCGB) union has called on Cargolux (CLX) pilots (FC) to work to rule in protest against plans to add a 2nd airplane to subsidiary carrier, Cargolux Italia (ICV).
(LCGB) had told its members to “strictly follow the exact terms of their collective work agreement (CWA),” effective midnight September 26. The union said its members have previously been flexible, regularly volunteering to fly on off days and work beyond the hours laid down in the (CWA). The union warned the action is likely to cause network disruption and considerable delays.
Pilots (FC) are worried about the impact of outsourcing on Luxembourg-based jobs. These concerns have been escalated by Cargolux Italia (ICV) taking an additional airplane, which will be deployed on routes that were previously flown by Cargolux (CLX).
(LCGB) has presented management with a memorandum of understanding (MOU), committing to jobs in Luxembourg across all functions. “The 100% contract compliance remains in effect until either the (MOU) is signed or until a new (CWA) is concluded,” the union said.
January 2015: Cargolux (CLX) management continues to be stuck in difficult negotiations with Luxembourg labor unions after rejecting a collective work agreement (CWA) that expired at the end of December. Its conditions remain in place until the end of 2015.
However, management is hopeful it will resolve the stalemate with unions and reach an agreement on a new (CWA), which will lay the foundations for securing Cargolux (CLX)’s economic sustainability and survival in an increasingly difficult and competitive market environment. A new (CWA) should bring lower personnel costs (particularly crew) and improved productivity in order to increase (CLX)’s competitiveness and preserve existing jobs.
The (LCGB) union said the signatory unions have decided to go into conciliation, hoping the conciliation process would lead to a breakthrough in negotiations. If the conciliation process fails, the unions have the right to start industrial action.
The major difference between (CLX) management and the unions, lies in the scope clause, which was presented by the unions as a fundamental framework for a controlled global growth, while safeguarding jobs in Luxembourg, the (LCGB) said, adding the unions made several proposals in December that resulted in accumulated savings of <-$42 million.
Last September, the (LCGB) union called on Cargolux (CLX) pilots (FC) to work to rule in protest against plans to add a 2nd airplane to its subsidiary, Cargolux Italia (ICV).
