AIR ALGERIE EMPLOYEE DISPUTE TALKS SUSPENDED

Talks were suspended between union leaders and Air Algerie management when it was claimed a promise to reinstate staff sacked during last week’s four-day strike had not been honoured.

“We withdrew from the talks after we realised that our colleagues had been prevented from resuming work,” Yassine Hamamouche, president of the SNPNC union representing staff at the state-run airline, told AFP.

“Management undertook to sort out this situation and talks should resume Monday at 2:00 pm (1300 GMT)” if the sanctions against some strikers were lifted, he added.

Airline chief Mohamed Salah Boultif said he hoped to find a compromise that would satisfy the airline’s 9,000 employees and that although he could not go beyond the 20% increase already granted he did have some margin for manoeuvre.
