On May 19 2015, it held EGM to decide on two motions: 1) to agree the Airport Sit in and 2) authorize ExCo to escalate further industrial action if needed. The EGM of FAU was attended by more than 600 members and the two motions were adopted. A Marathon Sit In began after EGM and bus will be arrange for Members to proceed to the HK airport.
According to the FAU, Cathay Pacific Airways has been named Caring Company for 13th consecutive years by the Hong Kong Council of Social Service (HKCSS). However, what’s behind the scene is absolutely on the contrary - i.e. endless dictatorship and oppression. Below are some recent examples:
1. 11% discrepancy of salary increment for Cabin Crew who have their contract renewal in the same month, under the same employment condition.
2. Disregarded her own laid down policy and the agreement signed with the Union in calculating the outport meal allowance.
3. Removal of full coverage in legal support to Cabin Crew when handling unruly passengers.
