Wizz Air: Stop union-busting now!

November 27, 2014

Wizz Air is a low-cost airline based in Central and Eastern Europe that proudly says on its website “we believe that people make all the difference”.

They add that the company “believes in high ethical standards driven by an excellent team-player approach”.

But that “ethical” approach doesn’t include trade unions.

Earlier this year, a couple of courageous cabin crew members decided to set up a trade union at Wizz Air.

One month after founding the union its president Mircea Constantin was fired on false disciplinary grounds.

The vice president and secretary of the trade union, Claudiu Bita and Denisa Chelu, have been suspended claiming that their union involvement makes them a safety hazard.

That’s right: the company is saying that being a union member is a “safety hazard”.

The CEO of Wizz Air, who founded the company a decade ago, says he’ll never accept unions in his company.

Earlier this month, 19 union members at Wizz Air lost their jobs.

Those workers need our support today. Please click here to send a strong message to József Varádi, the CEO of Wizz Air here>>

This campaign is conducted in partnership with the European Trade Union Confederation (ETUC) and the European Transport Workers’ Federation (ETF), the European arm of the ITF.

Please spread the word to your friends, family and fellow union members.
