PhilippineAirlines: FASAP talks moving P105-M new PAL offer

Philippine Airlines (PAL) management and the Flight Attendants’ and Stewards’ Association of the Philippines (FASAP) on Wednesday (22 September 2010) “agreed in principle” to expand maternity benefits but remained “deadlocked” on the issue of compensation and changes in the retirement age of crew members.
PAL spokesperson Cielo Villaluna said on top of PAL’s original P80-million offer last week, the flag carrier offered the union a P25-million increase in their rice allowance for the period 2007 to 2010. This brings to P105-million the total economic package offered to FASAP.

Villaluna stressed, however, that the expanded benefits and allowances are part of a package. Hence, their approval are contingent on the signing by PAL and FASAP of a final agreement that puts to rest all economic, gender and retirement issues under discussion.

“The offers were made in good faith, proof that PAL is sincere in its efforts to settle and finally put closure to its 2005-2010 Collective Bargaining Agreement (CBA) with FASAP,” she said.

Despite significant strides during Wednesday's five-hour PAL-FASAP talks, Villaluna said ‘sticky’ points remain such as the compensation package and changes in the retirement age of crew members. She said PAL could only offer P105-million after suffering huge losses in the last two years, but it appears that the union wants much more than what PAL is capable of giving.

Meanwhile, PAL is willing to change the retirement age to 45 from 40 for both male and female crew members, on the condition that FASAP agrees to a mixed crew complement – a work rule arrangement allowing younger cabin crew to fly international together with the more senior attendants, and vice-versa, the senior crew taking domestic flight assignments.

Management said junior cabin attendants are well-trained and capable of serving international flights but provisions in their CBA prevent them from doing so.

Current work rules restricting the flight assignments of younger flight attendants were inserted in the previous CBA by FASAP itself. Because of this, only senior cabin crew enjoy higher perks and per diems when they fly international, Villaluna said.

“We want to introduce changes in the current work rules so that both young and senior cabin attendants can both serve in domestic and international routes,” she said.

PAL hopes the union would agree to the proposed changes for the sake of younger crew members. Otherwise, it would appear that some FASAP members are discriminating against their own kind, she said.

PhilippineAirlines: Get a free PAL ticket for your birthday

Birthday celebrants in the next two-and-a-half months are in for a treat from Philippine Airlines – a free ticket on any domestic route for every similarly routed ticket purchased during the promotion period.
In a new promo dubbed “Halloween Trip and Treats for your Birthday,” PAL is offering a free domestic ticket to all those marking their natal day within the months of September, October and November 2010.

To avail of the free tickets, birthday celebrants must purchase a revenue ticket between September 16 and 30, 2010. The celebrant should present proof of birthday along with the revenue ticket at any PAL ticket office and the complimentary ticket is immediately issued.

Both free and revenue tickets must reflect the same domestic route and class of service. The free ticket is for the birthday celebrant and cannot be given to another person. Both tickets must be used for travel between September 16 and November 30, 2010, except for a brief blackout period from October 28 to November 2, 2010.

PAL flies between Manila and 20 domestic destinations: Bacolod, Butuan, Cagayan de Oro, Cebu, Cotabato, Davao, Dipolog, Dumaguete, General Santos, Iloilo, Kalibo, Laoag, Legaspi, Ozamiz, Puerto Princesa, Roxas, Tacloban, Tagbilaran and Zamboanga.

To avail of the promo, visit www.philippineairlines.com, any PAL ticket office or accredited travel agents. For inquiries and bookings, call PAL Reservations at (02) 855-8888 in Manila, (032) 340-0191 in Cebu and (082) 221-5513 in Davao.

PhilippineAirlines: PAL operations 'normal' despite FASAP strike notice

Philippine Airlines (PAL) today (September 9, 2010) assured the riding public of continued and unhampered service despite a notice of strike filed by its cabin crew union.

"PAL's operations remain normal and all flights are operating as scheduled. There is no immediate work stoppage," PAL spokesperson Cielo Villaluna stressed.

She explained that the notice of strike filed by the Flight Attendants' and Stewards' Association of the Philippines (FASAP) commences a legal process by which the two parties, with guidance from the labor department, would find ways of striking a balance between what the union wants and what management can afford and is prepared to give.

Under the law, parties have a 30-day cooling-off period after the filing of a notice of strike. During this time the labor secretary will continue to mediate and find a compromise settlement. It is also within the labor secretary's authority to issue an assumption order which automatically enjoins the intended strike.

Villaluna said the union's plan to strike is ill-timed as it would scare away tourists and cause further damage to the flag carrier’s fragile finances. “We are saddened by the union’s decision, but we recognize their right to file a notice of strike,” Villaluna said. She added the union’s move is untimely in the wake of thousands of Hong Kong and Chinese tourists canceling their forward bookings in the aftermath of the Rizal Park hostage tragedy. “A strike threat doesn’t help in efforts to lure back tourists to the country.”

She added that management is willing to sit down again with FASAP leaders to discuss and settle any pending issues in the 2007-2010 collective bargaining agreement.

Villaluna said FASAP’s claims that they are overworked and underpaid are without factual basis. “PAL's cabin attendants receive an average gross monthly salary ranging from P30,000 to 80,000. They also enjoy enviable rest periods.”

She also refuted accusations of age and gender discrimination. “The early retirement age is part of the negotiated CBA FASAP leaders signed on two separate dates. They complain of alleged inequity of early retirement provisions when in fact the older batch of FASAP members, including the union leaders themselves, have been receiving and enjoying financial benefits in exchange for the younger retirement age of their colleagues,” Villaluna stressed.

On the claim that PAL discourages pregnancy among cabin attendants, Villaluna said there were at least 65 cabin attendants who went on maternity leave last year. “All of them received maternity benefits in accordance with the Labor Code and the CBA. PAL even advanced P30,000 in SSS benefits before they gave birth,” she said.
