In early December, five employees will face trial in Paris on charges of assault and battery with aggravating circumstances.

Last week in the course of protests against cuts in Air France, workers ripped the shirt away from Chief of Staff Xavier Broseta and forced him to flee through the fence. In addition, they tore out the shirt and jacket on one of the directors of the company Pierre Plisson.

Air France’s management then announced the forthcoming reduction of 2.9 thousand jobs, or about 5% of the staff. In addition, the carrier intended to cancel orders for airliners and close the 22 least profitable destinations, mostly it comes to flights between Europe and Asia, where competition is particularly high.

The negotiations between the company and employees are continuing. Air France, in particular, insists on improving the economic efficiency of pilots by 17% due to increase in working hours while maintaining the same salary.

Initially, the French authorities tried to put pressure on employees, forcing them to agree to the proposed terms. However, on Wednesday this week, the Minister of Ecology Segolene Royal (transport secretariat is in her submission) called Air France "defer" restructuring and engage in dialogue with the trade unions.

The official Paris does not want transport problems and mass protests before the upcoming regional elections and the UN Conference on Climate Change held in the French capital in early December.
