Aeromexico settles labour dispute with flight attendants.
Flight attendants with Mexican airline, Aeromexico, ended a 12-day labour dispute yesterday (14 June) and accepted a pay rise of 12% from the carrier.
Aeromexico has not only offered a wage increase of 12%, but has also agreed to increase other benefits by 5% and will spend USD526,513 to build a day-care centre and establish a retirement trust for 1,500 members of the flight attendants' union, Asociacion Sindical de Sobrecargos de Aviacion.
Strike costs totalling some USD10,000 will also be paid out by the carrier according to Agencia EFE.
The flight attendants, who commenced the strike action on 1 June, had originally demanded a wage increase of 20%, but the airline maintained that it could only afford a 12% increase.
