Ivorian Air Afrique workers set conditions

Abidjan- Côte d'Ivoire (PANA) -- The three Air Afrique workers unions in Côte d'Ivoire have set six conditions including the departure of the pro tem manager Jeffrey Erickson, that they want met before they sign an agreement proposed by the company's head office.
Sources close to the unions, which have put a strike notice on hold, also want the cancellation of a decision to place them on technical unemployment.
They also want a reintegration of colleagues retrenched as management makes to restructure the beleaguered air company.
Other aspects of their claims include the payment of salary arrears for January, February and March, the presentation of a strategic plan before any staff cuts, the implementation of an agreement on voluntary resignations, and the withdrawal of sanctions and proceedings against their delegates.
The trade unions called off their decision to strike when the Ivorian Prime Minister recommended that both parties resume negotiations under the auspices of the government.
