TNA Broadcast: TNA Pilots facing the challenges with unity
Do you believe in… transnational bargaining? Because we do! For years ECA has worked towards a strategy to ensure transnational airline (TNA) pilots are adequately represented, overcoming the challenges of national borders, restrictive legislation and sometimes – unfriendly management.
The legal framework in Europe doesn’t make life easier for TNA pilots. In fact, success and progress in transnational bargaining happen despite the legal framework. But we believe that the borders of national labour law are not the borders of pilot representation. TNA Pilot Groups are no longer a luxury but a much-needed answer to the organisation and tactics used by certain airlines today.
Yet, effective TNA bargaining remains an ultimate challenge for pilots. This is why ECA embarked on an EU-funded project to find the recipe for success of TNA representation and negotiations. The final result of this study, 2 seminars (July & November) and years of analytical work is bundled in our new TNA Handbook.
