Olympic Aviation pilots delay strike action

Pilots of Greece…

Pilots of Greece’s largest regional carrier, Olympic Aviation , decided to end work-to-rule action and extend a nine-day deadline (till August 19) to holding company Olympic Airlines for acceptance of demands.
Last week, pilots` representatives met with the management of the regional carrier’s owner and its new managing director, Rod Lynch. They demanded that the existing development plan be implemented, especially the procurement of new jets. If their demands were not met, they warned of work stoppages and strikes.
Meanwhile, Mr. Lynch met with Olympic Airways Federation of Civil Aviation Associations’ leadership where he stressed that all employees will retain their jobs.
Mr. Lynch said the state-owned air carrier needs all its current employees, adding that the aim is for the airline to expand and utilize all staff.
The OA executive and the union leaders will meet again this week to discuss specific topics, such as the transfer of the company to the new airport at Spata as well as new plans for ground services.
