the SAS group plans to shut part of their operations into a new subsidiary has been created internal to the resurrection of christ. The employees have previously spoken about the ”civil war” in an anonymous letter to the management and the unions have been concerned that the new low-cost companies, like that of the irish subsidiary, is on its way to being created.
the Airline has long been under pressure from high fuel costs, a weak exchange rate, and now the new coronavirus. When, then, at the start of Wednesday's report showed a miljardförlust was the ceo, Rickard Gustafson, see SAS share price plummet by about ten percent. In total, the share price has fallen 43 per cent in the last three months of the year.
the new subsidiary, which has now been confirmed by the ceo himself. The idea is that the SAS group will be able to buy into the plan for the smaller model and put it into the new company, which will be on the short distances in which the new Airbusplanen is too big.
The company has been secretly entered into a collective bargaining agreement with a Danish trade union, FPU. The news has again been given to the pre-existing slots in the said act. However, Andrew Gustafson, says that there is nothing to worry about.
" It's not that simple, that the company has different activities with different purposes, but it is a part of the same group of companies. There are four pilotföreningar, and the four-kabinföreningar of the day, we're like the SAS, all of them, so why should this be any different, " he said.
it is necessary, in order to buy a set of small planes is due to the SAS mångmiljardinvestering in a so-called enhetsflotta. The company would like to in the future, just make use of the aircraft, but the French supplier has any plan that is sufficiently small for the short regional routes where SAS flies.
at the same time, the company will not, nor get rid of the short trips, they are important as they feed the long-haul traffic fleet with the passengers. Then the alternative is to look for the small planes from other manufacturers, which have to be placed in a separate company, in order not to interfere with the construction of the enhetsflottan of this great CHARITY.
it has been a subsidiary of the the smaller the pitch should be able to end up being a low-wage country outside of Scandinavia, the scandinavian, the staff would then be priced out of the new staff, for example from the Baltic states.
for The promise, Richard Gustafson, a , now that it's not going to happen.
" no, No, there will be a scandinavian business, where the airline industry is going to have their bases in this region, they will be hosted by a scandinavian staff, and in one of the scandinavian terms.
" the Change is, well a pain. Change creates uncertainty, and, before anything is in place, there is always the question you would like to straighten it out. Then, it is easy to such a way of the tone of his voice, which is something I regret, " says Tony.
According to him, it was the FPU, which is the new trade union, which is contacted by the SAS, when the prospect of a new platform for the smaller, regional airlines started to be well-known. What is the Danish unions, which already have both pilots and flight attendants among its members, but other than that, as long as from the.
" and the existing associations were not interested in talking, especially not to our pilotföreningar, so we said ”fine, let's do this,” says Gustafson.
also , the SPF is critical for the new agreement and believes that the SAS passed the back of them.
" We were told this at a meeting on Monday. He says the SAS management team and the red note first that they are willing to cooperate with the us on this issue, and, at the same meeting, they tell you that they have entered into an agreement with a recognised trade union of which we are not even aware of, " says Wilhelm, Tersmeden, chairman of the SAS section of the Swedish Pilotförening.
informed on their membership of their relationship to the company's management is now a totally unsustainable konfliktläge”. At the same time, then goes still, like a wire.
"You could say that this is the last chance they get to our site," says Wilhelm, Tersmeden, explains further:
" We have communicated to the group's management, we have reached a point at which we have been given the opportunity to work with the management team, however, with respect to the company, its shareholders, and customers, extending our hand, and that we work together to resolve these issues so that both parties can live with the solution.

"We are concerned that a third party is going to threaten our jobs and take on our existing contracts," says Jean Smith, the chair of the English kabinfacket SCCA.

regarding the unions ' comments, he feels that they have received that they want to date.
" basically, it's the signal they've sent into the process, it is important for them to ensure the scandinavian sites, and we would like to provide. That's exactly what we're trying to do here.
In mid-February, and released the SAS to a new tv commercial, which quickly spread on social media. The message was that a lot of the scandinavian tradition has its roots in other parts of the world. Far-right radicals attacked the company. The SAS moved back and forth, and went back to the movie first, and then re-publish it in a re-edited version.
" In retrospect, I regret the fact that the message was not clear to all of you, and it was enough that we made a film on social media, it took me a long time to get to the main message. So many people lost enough to lose weight and wondered, what is it? says Rickard Gustafson.
" we should learn a lesson from, but the story in and of itself, I think, is very nice.
then again, So are the low-cost airlines in Sweden.
