AOM-Air Liberté : strike on Nice-Paris
The strike of the Air Liberté and AOM staff has been particularly followed in Nice where flights of both compnaies to Paris Orly have been cancelled (the air link with the capital has been ensured by Air France). The two airline companies, which belong to SAirGroup are under the threath of a drastic social plan which should be announced on April 25th, the date of the general assembly of their owner, the collapsing SAirGroup. Employees, that have started a strike, have made a demonstration at the Medef in the afternoon. Indeed, Ernest-Antoine Sellières, the president of the Medef, is, through one of his companies, one of the main shareholders of AOM, Air Liberté and Air Littoral which were expected to group in order to form the second french air pole.
