    The unions are learning fast, will there be an OW union alliance? I hope this won't turn into when one union, say AA's, strike, other unions will follow. This will be really bad :eek:

    Given labour issues seem to be around in some form or another with AA, BA, CX, JL... QF? It could create some problems for passengers, for sure.

    I can't see how picketing a couple of flights a day in a foreign port will make a difference

    I’m all for unions, but only so long as they don’t get cocky and demand unreasonable things from airlines suffering losses. As for a collective union across all the airlines, I can’t see that being a benefit to anyone.

    "After the formal session, Rodriguez explained that the other two airline alliances — the 27-airline Star Alliance and 13-member Skyteam — are not the focus of the union coalition’s effort but may be in the future.
    The group plans to meet again in Madrid in June."
    How this would run afoul of, and conflict potentially with, each nation's own labor laws is a lawyer's billable dream and everyone else's nightmare.....Could you imagine every labor contract having to be ruled upon by the World Court in The Hague.....regardless of whether all workers and airline were totally in another country?? :eek::rolleyes:

    It'll be interesting to see how this develops.

    Nations can't agree on certain issues all in the name of their sovereignty....and the airline unions expect this labour alliance to go unchallenged. :eek:
