French Pilots’ Union Confirms Strike Call for Feb. 6-9

France’s main pilots’ union, SNPL, said it has called for a strike between Feb. 6 and Feb. 9 to protest government plans to require minimum service during labor action.

The union said the government is seeking to limit their right to oppose management decisions that go against their interests. Air France said that on Feb. 6, it plans to operate more than 85 percent of its long-haul flights, and more than 80 percent of medium-haul flights.
