Cathay Pacific pilots threaten to begin work-to-rule action: report


HONG KONG–Pilots at Hong Kong’s Cathay Pacific are threatening to launch a work-to-rule labor campaign that may cause flight delays and cancellations during the busy holiday season, a report said Friday. The campaign would see pilots refuse to work beyond their scheduled shifts unless management agrees to a 30 percent pay raise over four years, the South China Morning Post said.

The Hong Kong Aircrew Officers Association (HKAOA) will poll its 1,600 members next week to gauge whether they want to press on with the action, the Post said.
