Airline to hear staff demands Feb 8

- +

Demands by Thai Airways International staff for a salary increase of 7.5% and a two-month bonus will be decided by the airline's board on Feb 8, THAI president Sorajak Kasemsuwan said on Sunday. 

Mr Sorajak was detailing the latest development after about 400 ground staff of the airline called off their strike over their demands on Sunday morning. The protest disrupted dozens of flights on Saturday, including international ones.

The THAI president's remark contrasted with a claim by Jaemsri Sukchoterat, the THAI labour union chairwoman who led the strike, on Sunday that the board of directors and the staff had reached a mutual agreement.
