THAI service staff threaten strike action

- +

Ground service staff working for Thai Airways International (THAI) plan to go on strike on April 13 to press for higher pay. 

Samart Pantang, union president of WingSpan Services Co, a subsidiary of THAI, said yesterday the union would convene a meeting of its members on April 12 and probably strike the following day because past negotiations failed to convince management to pay monthly salaries instead of daily wages to about 3,000 employees and to offer a 3-5% pay rise.

Mr Samart said WingSpan Services employs more than 4,000 workers and only about 1,000 receive monthly salaries. Workers have not received a pay raise for three years.
