UAL FLIGHT ATTENDANT LEADER MEETS WITH FRENCH COUNTERPART TO DISCUSS PROPOSED PARIS DOMICILE

 UAL FLIGHT ATTENDANT LEADER MEETS WITH FRENCH COUNTERPART
 TO DISCUSS PROPOSED PARIS DOMICILE
 PARIS, May 15 /PRNewswire/ -- The Association of Flight Attendants' (AFA) Master Executive Council (MEC) president at United Airlines, A. Diane Tucker, met yesterday with the Syndicat National du Personnel Navigant Commercial (SNPNC), which represents the flight attendants of French airline companies. The meeting was held to discuss and assess United Airlines' plan to open a flight attendant base in Paris on Aug. 1, 1992. Both unions expressed their concerns and disagreement to this plan as follows:
 -- The plan would infringe and circumvent French law and the United Airlines' collective bargaining agreement by subjecting the flight attendants to American employment contracts and staff the operations managed out of Paris with employees who will not equally benefit from the terms of the collective bargaining agreement negotiated between United Airlines and AFA.
 -- The plan would infringe upon the interests of the French airline companies by implementing unfair competition and using personnel with limited benefits coverage.
 -- The plan would import in France the negative results of American deregulation.
 One may hope, however, that the French authorities will grasp the risks that such a precedent would create:
 -- as it will lead the way for other foreign airlines to exploit a staff with no status in either country,
 -- demonstrating that certain companies outside the EC have already understood the profits that they would derive from the gaps created by the liberalization/deregulation procedures of the European skies.
