Request for Mutual Assistance for Norsk Flygerforbund (Norway ALPA)
The Pilots’ Association of Norway (Norsk Flygerforbund, NF), are requesting Mutual Assistance on behalf of Scandinavian Airlines pilots organized in NSF and the umbrella organization SPG.
We have been informed by NF that pilots have been negotiating a new Collective Labor Agreement since 20 March. Since airlines are considered an essential service in Norway, a national mandatory mediation process started and will continue until 25 April 23:59 LT. If mediation results unsuccessful, industrial action will probably follow.
Issues that are being under negotiation are, amongst others: social uncertainty, career opportunities, and general terms and conditions, which have worsened for the past 20 years.
The probable industrial action has the full support of more than 90% of all pilots under SPG.
Therefore, NF requests, through IFALPA, the following Mutual Assistance starting on 26 April at 00:01, until further notice:
- Request for Ban on Wet Leasing (2.4.1)
- Request for Increased Capacity (18.104.22.168)
- Recruitment Ban (2.4.3)
- Denial of Training Facilities (2.4.4)
- Request for Assistance to Pilots Stranded Away from their Home Base (2.4.5)
All IFALPA Member Associations are encouraged to support NF pilots by forwarding support letters to: Cpt. Yngve Carlsen, President of NF, [email protected]
NF will keep IFALPA and its Member Associations informed of any further developments.
