In the midst of a fierce wage war, the Air France-KLM aviation group is changing the top management. Following the resignation of Jean-Marc Janaillac, the former Chief Financial Officer Frédéric Gagey will take over as Chief Executive Officer for the time being.
Air France-KLM has appointed its Chief Financial Officer Frédéric Gagey as interim Group CEO. He replaces the previous boss Jean-Marc Janaillac, who announced his resignation a week ago. The reason for this was that the majority of employees had spoken out against Janaillac’s salary proposal, which was intended to resolve the tough wage dispute at Air France.
The airline’s employees have been on strike for more money since February and there is no end in sight to the costly wage dispute. The unions demand a 5.1% wage increase for this year. Janaillac had offered 7% over four years.Email Post to a Friend
