Question for written answer E-007905-17
to the Commission
Rule 130
Giulia Moi (EFDD)

 Subject:  Airlines
 Answer in writing 

A well-known budget airline operating all over Europe is currently receiving public attention due to numerous strikes and resignations by pilots.

In Italy, the airline has sent its employees a letter containing threats, seeking to restrict their right to strike.

The Italian Government maintains that it cannot intervene, since the staff are bound by contracts concluded abroad, even though they are based in Italy and working for departments located there.

Does the Commission believe that these business practices are in line with respect for workers’ rights and that they are conducive to protection of the rights of passengers?
