Jetstar Japan Designated Strike – 14 Members on Strike on December 26th

Jetstar Japan

The Jetstar Crew Association (JCA), a labor union of Jetstar Japan, has announced that 14 members will carry out a designated strike tomorrow, December 26th.

The strike will include three captains, one first officer, and ten cabin crew members. The scheduled flights affected, excluding duplicates, will cover 32 domestic and international flights. Previously, four members conducted a strike on the 22nd, eight on the 23rd and 24th, and nine on the 25th.

The JCA, consisting of pilots and cabin crew, was established in July 2018. They have been engaged in a ‘soft strike’, which involved refusing requests for work schedule changes, since December 1st. After negotiations remained unresolved by the evening of December 21st, the union commenced a designated strike from the 22nd. Although two flights were canceled on both the 24th and 25th, the JCA attributes these cancellations to the strike, while the company cites crew health issues as the cause.

According to the JCA, although the company proposed collective negotiations for the 26th, the union’s executive committee members who were supposed to attend were unable to adjust their work schedules due to the company’s inability to accommodate the changes, making it likely that negotiations will take place after the 27th.
