Hundreds of Taiwanese Flight Attendants Pelt Airline Office with Eggs

TAIPEI – Hundreds of China Airlines flight attendants on Friday pelted the airline’s Taipei headquarters with eggs as they accused CAL of failing to honor agreements on working conditions.

The protesters gathered outside the offices waving banners that read “CAL’s dishonorable tactics, outraged workers throw eggs,” threatening to go on strike unless the firm met their demands, as police officers looked on, an epa journalist reported.

Members of the Taoyuan Flight Attendants Union previously held an unprecedented strike on June 24 and held protests at the same area, leading to negotiations on improving working conditions and overseas allowances, according to local daily Taiwan News.

But protesters today claimed that the airline had failed to meet five of seven promises reached and demanded an answer by the end of October.

CAL responded that it was in the process of implementing the pledges from the June agreements.
