Jetstar Union Cancels Strike Scheduled for March 29

Jetstar Japan (Airbus A320 aircraft)

The Jetstar Crew Association (JCA), a union comprising cabin attendants and pilots of Jetstar Japan, has announced the cancellation of the strike planned for tomorrow, March 29.

JCA had previously notified the company about conducting a strike starting at 10 a.m. on March 29. “The decision was made prioritizing the safety of our members above all, after it was mentioned that disciplinary actions could be considered for strike participants if the company isn’t notified about the participants 48 hours before a large-scale strike is to commence,” the union commented. Whether strikes will occur after March 30 remains undecided.

Jetstar Japan stated, “While making utmost efforts to avoid the strike and respecting the right to strike as a labor right, considering that our business falls under ‘public service’ (Article 8, Paragraph 1, Item 1 of the Labor Relations Adjustment Law), we have requested JCA to provide notice of the strike, including the participants, with sufficient time to fulfill our social responsibilities as a public service provider and public transportation operator.” The company is accepting changes to bookings between March 29 and 31 without fees.
