New labor pact for Brussels Airlines cabin crew

A Collective Labour Agreement between Brussels Airlines and its cabin crew union was reached this week.

An article about the new agreement on Expatica said:
The reduction of the rotation period from 40 to 30 minutes on certain routes was a particular bone of contention. This new rotation time will stay in force, but in return for certain benefits, such as guarantees on income, the promise of a new assessment system and food-vouchers on European flights, emphasised Anita Van Hoof, the union representative.
The article goes on to say that Brussels Airlines cabin crew had been opposing the reduction since the airline's launch. It is not yet clear whether these actions will now be abandoned.
