Air New Zealand Confirms FARSA Cabin Crew Strikes Averted

Travel News Asia 31 January 2003

Air New Zealand today announced that the threatened industrial action next month by FARSA (Flight Attendants and Related Services Association) has been averted.

This follows a brief hearing in the Employment Court this morning at which both parties agreed to refer the matter to the Employment Court for a substantive hearing set down for 20 March 2003.

This hearing will determine whether bargaining between Air New Zealand and FARSA had concluded and, if concluded, whether FARSA can lawfully strike.

Meanwhile any industrial action by Air New Zealand's FARSA affiliated long haul cabin crew has been deferred.
