The airline «El al» appealed to the district court of tel-Aviv labor conflicts, a statement that the collective dismissal of the pilots may lead to the suspension of flights. In the administration believe that the simultaneous dismissal of several of the pilots is a planned protest.
In the appeal to the court indicated that the pilots, their dismissal, can cause significant damage to the company, the amount of which is at this stage difficult to assess. In light of this, the company asked the court to declare the dismissal of the pilots «illegal strike» and to oblige them to return to work.
We will remind that in the night of 14 February representatives of the working Committee of the pilots demonstratively left the hall shortly after the resumption of negotiations with the company management, despite the presence of the President of the General Federation of trade unions («Histadrut»), AVI Nissenkorn acting as a mediator in the negotiations.
According to the company’s management, the pilots flatly rejected a proposal to pay the pilots over 65 years of age of 50 thousand shekels for 9 working days in a month as instructors on the simulators.
Wednesday, February 15, will come into force the resignation of the pilots, holding positions responsible for the fleet of Boeing-744, 767 and 737, as well as main pilots of Boeing-737 and 744, the chief flight instructor Boeing-737, chief instructor and chief technician Boeing-737, head of the Department instructors, Department head of planning, head of security and chief of operations.
