As part of TAP's restructuring process, the Civil Aviation Flight Personnel Union (SNPVAC) and the company's management have agreed to reduce redundancies to 166 crew members
The Civil Aviation Flight Personnel Union (SNPVAC) and TAP management have agreed to reduce redundancies to 166 crew members from the 746 initially planned as part of the company’s restructuring process.
“After a long negotiation marathon, an agreement was reached which protects 580 crew members from the redundancies identified by TAP”, the SNPVAC informed in a communication to its members, adding that “the number is not closed and more jobs could be saved depending on the number of crew members joining the voluntary labour measures”.
TAP’s management, the government and the unions representing the company’s workers have held several meetings in recent weeks in order to reach an emergency agreement to run until December 31, 2024, thus suspending several clauses of the company agreement in force to date, as part of the airline’s restructuring plan, which provides for a reduction in jobs and in the wage bill.
The agreement reached with the crew also foresees wage cuts of 25% in 2021, 2022 and 2023, while in 2024 the reduction is 20%.
However, the pay cuts do not affect wages of less than 1,330 euros, except in 2021, when the limit without reduction is 1,200 euros.
The reduction of the normal working period will apply to all crew members: 15% in 2021, 10% in 2022 and 5% in 2023.
