SNPL the French pilots union are calling for strike action in May

The main pilot union in France, the SNPL has given advance notice that it may call for strike action to take place between 6th May and 11th May if a new law reduces its power of representation.  

SNPL fear that proposed laws being debated by lawmakers could include them with other large trade unions in the sector in negotiations with legislators or employers, drowning out their voice particularly on issues that directly affect pilots.  Local media reports indicate the union has issued a nationwide strike notice to the Prime Minister, Edouard Philippe, Muriel Penicaud, the Labour Minister and Minister for Transport Elisabeth Borne.
