Nasty Air France Labor Dispute Drags in French Government

Nasty Air France Labor Dispute Drags in French Government

PARIS (AP) — France's prime minister paid a hasty visit to the Air France headquarters a day after two executives were sent fleeing from a meeting with union activists, who singled them out and ripped off their suit jackets and shirts.

The Air France meeting Monday was intended to detail plans to cut 2,900 jobs and slash money-losing routes. The airline has not made a profit since 2008, although it has been steadily trimming losses in recent years, in part by voluntary departures and vacancies. Mayhem broke out when executives told staff that more cuts were needed.

Prime Minister Manuel Valls, whose top adviser is rumored to be leaving to become Air France personnel chief in January, was shown on live television Tuesday meeting with the current jobholder, who was among those attacked.
