In a statement, the SNPVAC said that, “as is common knowledge”, it had declared “strike notice for the 26th, 28th and 30th of May, 1st and 3rd of June for easyJet cabin crew”.

“Due to the adherence of 100% of the crew during the last strike on the 1st, 2nd and 3rd of April, easyJet decided to proceed with the massive cancellation of flights: of the 458 original flights to leave from the Portuguese bases of Lisbon, Porto and Faro, 84% of planned flights".

The easyJet cabin crew called a strike for the 26th, 28th and 30th of May and the 1st and 3rd of June, the SNPVAC announced in a statement on the 11th of May.

In the note, addressed to members, the union structure said that "easyJet continues to consider the crew of Portuguese bases as minor workers", perpetuating their "precariousness and discrimination against colleagues from other countries".
