It has been brought to the attention of IFALPA that, on 23 August 2023, the Danish airline North Flying fired all its DALPA represented pilots by releasing them from the collective agreement with FPU (Flight Personnel Union). The company and the pilots had been engaged in court proceedings since 16 August 2023.
Unilateral management decisions like this cannot be tolerated, especially in Denmark, where collective bargaining and social dialogue are encouraged and have long standing traditions. This action is viewed as bad faith bargaining creating a nefarious precedent which may produce negative consequences to pilots in Europe and for Danish aviation in general.
DALPA requests the Mutual Assistance outlined below, as per the IFALPA Industrial Manual, and further requests Letters of Support for North Flying pilots to be sent to the attention of Captain Aksel Lytzen (President) [email protected] and CC Sebastián Currás-Barrios ([email protected])
- Request for Ban on Wet Leasing (2.4.1)
- Request for Recruitment Ban (2.4.3)
- Request for Denial of Training Facilities (2.4.4)
- Request for Prohibition of Pilot Contracting (2.4.6)
- Request for Submissions and Representations (2.4.7)
DALPA will keep IFALPA and its Member Associations informed of any further developments.
