Croatia Airlines unions hint at summer strike


The Workers Organisation of Croatia Airlines (ORCA) has warned it may stage industrial action during the summer when the carrier handles the bulk of its annual traffic after unions described the company as being on the "verge of collapse", a claim the management has disputed. At the same time, the government has approved for Croatia Airlines to take out an 8.5 million euro loan to finance the overhaul of aircraft engines. The loan, which is being provided by two banks, one of which is state-owned, must be repaid by December 31, 2022. The latest developments at the company and the ongoing feud between the unions and management overshadowed the carrier's launch of two new routes from Zagreb last week, which marked the airline's third consecutive year of network expansion.

The unions have again warned that the airline is facing a shortage of staff, particularly in its maintenance division. "Aircraft are returning to service from maintenance late because of bad planning and a lack of licensed mechanics. There is no one to work in the hangars in three shifts", the pilots' union said. Aircraft have been late for up to 45 days in returning to service, forcing the carrier to wet-lease over a dozen different jets and cancel a number of flights through to May 17. Furthermore, the union noted that over the past four years 44 pilots have left Croatia Airlines and a further 73 mechanics, 68 of which went on to work abroad.

Croatia Airlines' employees are pushing for a new collective bargaining agreement after the previous one expired seventeen months ago. Talks between the unions and management have so far failed to produce results, while conciliation measures headed by the government have also been unsuccessful. This, according to ORCA, will pave way for a strike, which was cancelled in August of last year to allow for more talks over the collective agreement to take place between all parties involved.

Over the weekend, Croatia Airlines' management denied union claims that the carrier was on the verge of collapse, boasting of its strong financial performance in 2017, but failing to mention it was generated primarily through the sale of assets. Furthermore, the management said it was not facing an exodus of workers and noted that between January and April a total of seven different carriers operated on the airline's behalf on 89 flights. Meanwhile, the acting CEO of Croatia Airlines, Jasmin Bajić, has had his term extended by a further six months after the government failed to name his successor following a public call to select the carrier's new management.

  1. I have never head of an airline doing so many engine overhauls each year. What gives?

    1. I'm wondering that too. I have never heard of another airline having to constantly overhaul engines and taking loans and selling slots to do it.

    2. i am just wondering how in the world selling LHR slots is not enough to finance overhauls. they got 19.5 mil USD

      is it possible they were not setting aside maintenance reserve?


      furthermore, if you take in account that they will have to repay the loan and finance new 320s, there will be lots of fun in OU in the next 5 yrs

  3. Wait, wait, wait ... they sold the LHR slots to repair these engines. Why do they need €8.5 million for? Where did all the millions from the slots go?

    4. Fully agree with anon 9:04.

      Whole situation with OU looks very problematic - they are selling slots to repair engines, after it they take loans to repair the same engines, the costs of other planes wet leasing is higher than the costs of salary increasing (reason why employees are leaving OU), OU is receiving funds from EU for navigation modification on Q400 planes, many cancelled flights, no dialogue within the company that might result in strike action etc, no new CEO...

    2. Not sure what to make if this. From what I understand OU have been putting on about 12 to 20 pilots on average per year to replace those that leave to both retirement and pilots finding work elsewhere. It’s been like this for many years with only a few exceptions like during the GFC when pretty much no one left as no airlines were hiring at that time. So 44 pilots leaving in the last 4 years doesn’t seem to be out of the ordinary.

      Regarding the loan... I would say that they will be using this to pay for the Neos which they don’t have. I think this is scandalous that a small company like OU was aloud to get themselves into a situation where they are paying for planes they don’t have. Dead money and for me this would be enough to replace the entire management. I think saying the money is for engine overhaul is a bit of a red herring.

  16. Had a horrible first-hand experience with OU yesterday. Boarding the flight to SJJ was a mess, and OU's ground staff was incapable of dealing with a simple ticketing issue and they bumped by gf off the flight. They took her to ticketing afterwards and just kept saying the situation wasn't their fault, and telling her to "get a bus to SJJ on her own dime". Once I landed in SJJ and got to OU's ticketing office there, it took me 90 seconds to get the issue fixed and get her on the evening flight to OMO (SJJ was cancelled last night).
    Dealt with LH ticketing 3h before that in MUC, and they were very professional, courteous, and took 30 minutes to fix the said ticketing issue, involving calls to AF and DL. OU literally didn't care enough to just find the fix (issue was resolved at MUC), even when told exactly what they needed to do.
    For what it's worth, ZAG also felt somewhat chaotic and understaffed.

    1. I wonder how many passengers were affected by the cancellation to SJJ.

    2. Yeah...
      For anyone interested, it was a complex itin that had a schedule change, so DL reissued the ticket with a new ticket number (but apparently not connected to the original reservation and not showing up under gf's name). LH agent in MUC fixed it, and made sure everything was connected. She couldn't give my gf a boarding pass, and in ZAG they told us they'd just issue one at gate before boarding. Gate agent didn't want to do it before starting boarding; boarding started late and it was 5 min before scheduled departure before someone from OU showed up. Told them repeatedly "just check this ticket number, they fixed everything in MUC", to be told "no no no you don't get it, reservation is not connected to ticket".
      Took 90 seconds at OU's SJJ office and somebody actually listening to find the ticket and fix everything.

    4. So there was schedule change in original ticket (AF), other airline made the exchange (DL) not completely correctly), than LH in MUC fix it but she didn't give the boarding pass from ZAG although we all have same DCS (Althea). You showed up in ZAG, have 30-40 min for transfer and OU staff staff in horrible experience because your original airline mess up with your ticket? There is a transfer desk for situations like this, and is serviced by Zagreb airport staff, not OU.

      Delete
    5. Actually it is on OU.
      My transfer in ZAG was 90 minutes, and there was no one at the transfer desk.
      As I said, it took 90 seconds to fix the issue once I was in SJJ, but no one from OU cared in ZAG.
      And especially at their home bases, airlines tend to have their own staff at gates. A person from OU sgowed up very late here, and she wasn't helpful at all.

      S obzirom da Srbija nije u EU srpski radnik nema slobodu kretanja po EU (nema je jos ni hrvatski za sve zemlje EU)i zato je zadovoljan natprosecnom platom u JU.

      Moj stav vezan uz štrajk je vrlo jasan:

      - piloti, mehaničari i stjuardese su bili više nego strpljivi, dva puta su ih izveslali (zbog čega su prolonogirali odluku 2x 4 mjeseca). Bio sam na posljednjem sastanku gdje je ministar obečao da će se sve rješit do kraja travnja. Nije ispunio obečanje. Nije rješio baš ni jednu jedinu stvar od one koju je obečao

      - ljudi nemaju 17 mjeseci kolektivni ugovor

      - kompanija nema godinu i pola CEO jel se vlast ne može odlučiti

      - kompanija tone i zaposlenici su svjesni da će svi ostati na ulici u roku kraćem od godine dana.

      I zato se ljudi bore. Opravdano bore. I u tome ih treba podržati.

      Bio sam najljučiji protivnik štrajka u kolovozu, napao sam sindikate radi toga. Sada smatram da su bili u pravu jel, eto, vlast je pokazala da potpuno ignorira katastrofalno stanje u Croatiji Airlines i ne želi ga popraviti, a može. Lagano, brzo i efikasno.

      Rješenje za Croatiu postoji, napravio ga je tim ljudi u kojem sam bio i ja. Ministru je isto osobno prezentirano. Bio je "otuševljen". Samo nije baš ništa poduzeo u tom "oduševljenju".

    4. Alen Šćuric PurgerMay 7, 2018 at 7:30 PM

      Pa štrajk bi trebao biti stiskanje muda. Sindikati su od prvog dana jasno naglašavali da će štrajkati, samo su stvar prolongirali uvjereni da će ministar ispuniti obečanja. Ja nisam bio tako optimističan kao oni u siječnju. No, ja sam i neusporedivo iskustniji u obećanjima političara. Kako ja ni na koji način ne vodim sindikalnu politiku, niti bih je ikada i hito voditi ili mogao (konačno ja sam poslodavac, ona druga strana), tako su oni odlučili postupiti na ovaj način. Njihovo pravo, zar ne?

      No, mislim da su sada stvarno uvidjeli da više nema dalje. E, sad, što da Vam kažem, nemam pojma hoće li ih opet nećime na kraju "uvjeriti" ili ne.

    1. Shouldn't they have done all these maintenance work during the winter so the planes would be ready for summer?

      Delete
    2. Yes they were supposed to but like it says there are not enough mechanics and everything is taking much much longer.

    3. Plus not enough cash to do it all in winter.

  28. These short term wet leases must be expensive as hell.

  29. Pretty weird, JP has the exect same problems (minus pilots leaving) Cancelled flights, costly wet leases, exodus of mechanics (from a seperate company, but still)

    1. The number of JP cancelled flights is much lower... u cant compare both situations. But its true, a lot (!!) of JP flights are operated by ACMI companies. 5 weeks ago I flu on the route CDG-LJU which is operated by Carpatair - flight was delayed (like most of JP evening operations) for an hour, but I cant complain about nothing else.

    17.5. OU457 Brussels-Zagreb

    Važne napomene:
    - to nisu svi otkazani letovi, nego samo oni koje sam uspio pronaći i potvrditi ih
    - konačno neki letovi su sigurno otkazani, a nisu navedeni jer nema šanse da je otkazan samo Zagreb-Brussels, a ne i povratni let (no isto nisam mogao potvrditi), a takvih slučajeva ima bar 20
    - isto znači da je otkazano i biti će otkazano sigurno preko 100 letova u dva mjeseca od 18.3. do 17.5.
    - stoga možemo sa sigurnošću ustvrditi da nije istinit podatak da je otkazano samo 99 letova od nove godine do danas

      Not enough mechanics and because of that planes were delay for more than 45 days behind plan. They should be finished at end of March, but now they will do it at end of May.

      Naravno da će biti članak.

  31. ZAG-SJJ was cancelled last night as well, and so was SJJ-ZAG this morning (since it's the same A/C)

  32. I am feeling a bit worried reading that aircraft maintenance is impacted. Or who can calm me down that safety is still the highest priority in this company?

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. If they weren’t concerned about safety they would have returned the aircraft to service when they needed them. If anything this just shows they take safety seriously.

      Delete
    2. More concerning is the impact of their bottom line as the maintenance centre was one of their most profitable operations.

  33. OU will go bankrupt next year unless something changes.

  34. Is the Croatian media reporting on this?

    ReplyDelete
  35. Why don't they service their aircraft at other nearby MRO's such as Adria Tehnik or Jat Tehnika ??

    1. Jat Tehnika would make sense, Trade Air uses them.
