Deal is prerequisite for tie-up with Etihad Airways
Alitalia unions have announced that they have reached agreement with the airline’s management to avoid job dismissals for 1,900 employees.
Announced in a statement by the union FIT-CISL, the deal is part of a restructuring plan for the heavily indebted airline and a prerequisite for a tie-up with Etihad Airways, the news agency Reuters reports.
As previously reported at the beginning of February, Etihad Airways has entered the final phase of due diligence for a possible investment in the Italian flag carrier.
