Union calls off strike by TAP cabin crew after deal with new boss

The union representing cabin crew working for Portugal’s national airline, TAP, last night withdrew its call for members to strike, after reaching an agreement with the carrier's new management.

The union had last month issued preliminary warnings of four separate strikes, the first of which was to take place from the 9th to 11th of February. A union official said that the decision to withdraw the strike warning was "a vote of confidence in the new board" of TAP, whose new chief executive took office on Wednesday.


As a Portuguese-American I always took TAP whenever
I visited the country. However, it seemed every time I went someone at TAP was always on strike. If it wasn't the pilots it was the flight attendants. If it wasn't the flight attendants it was the check in clerks and so on. My flights were always delayed because of this. Finally TAP stood for "take another plane" so I've been taking United ever since. I hope this new ceo does in fact change things so as I can return to supporting Portugal's airline.
