Sanctions by El Al workers' committees disrupt the company's regular activities on Independence Day. Mechanics at the company abandoned their positions this morning before the civilian flight of the airlines, and following the protest, El Al is not participating in the civilian flight show. The EL AL workers' protest took place after the Minister of Transportation, Rabbi Michaeli, spoke this morning at the opening of the launch event of the Israeli Civil Aviation aircraft of Independence Day.
The Histadrut stated that they were not connected to the sanctions "in any way and form." Mal Al responded: "We are sorry that El Al was unable to take part in the festive flight of the 74th Independence Day. This is a serious incident. We are learning the details and we will take care so that such an incident does not happen again."
At the same time, at least three El Al flights from Ben Gurion Airport - to Brussels, Frankfurt and Athens - have been canceled today, joining flights to Miami, New York, Los Angeles and London that have been canceled in the last two days. Workers under the law and safety. "However, in the same breath, they claim that the company's management demanded that pilots from bereaved families" shoot "and miss Memorial Day ceremonies.
The Maintenance Workers' Committee claims that they have taken the sanctions in today's flight not against the management but against the pilots, and this is a step of solidarity with the passengers whose flights have been canceled. According to the committee, this is a step by all the company's employees who are not pilots who are happy that the pilots have canceled about 11 flights in the last few days. "If there are pilots for the Mets, then they will man the flights," the committee said.
El Al said in response to the cancellations of the flights: "El Al is forced to cancel several flights for operational reasons beyond its control. The company, in cooperation with all sectors and in all sectors, is making great efforts to get the flights out. EL AL staff are currently working to find customers Other flights or an appropriate alternative solution. "
Earlier this week, agreements were published between the Maintenance and Engineering Workers' Committee and the management of El Al, in which it was decided to remunerate an additional NIS 1,000 per month for May and June, and the possibility of an additional remuneration of NIS 2,000 per month for overtime. The Pilot Workers' Committee was dissatisfied with the agreement signed with the Maintenance and Engineering Workers' Committee, claiming that the conditions of the maintenance workers were hardly harmed as a result of the Corona, compared to the pilots' conditions which deteriorated significantly. The pilots claim that they are not "jealous" of the maintenance workers, but are disappointed with the conduct of the management who ignores their demands while the demand for flights jumps along with the recovery of the company stock. Sources at the company claim that following the signing of the agreement, pilots refuse to man flights.
The sanctions take place today, about a month after the appointment of Dina Ben-Tal-Genensia to the position of CEO of the company. She has been in various positions at El Al for 14 years and before that she advised the company as an external consultant on behalf of TASC, where she worked for nine years. This is the first time in the company's history that a woman will serve as CEO. The company also announced the appointment of Omri Cohen as Deputy CEO and Chief Operating Officer.
