  • Description

    Pilots of KLM Dutch Airline carried out their threat to strike today and none of their 'planes left Amsterdam. On Saturday last the pilots' organisation, by a majority of 97 per cent, decided to send a letter to Mr. Aler, a director of KLM requesting him to reinstate their spokesman on Wages, English-born Lionel Metz and J.F.S. De Laet, a Dutchman. The two were dismissed last week after accusing KLM directors of unfair tactics in their staff policy. The wage demands, which have been under negotiation for some time, seek an overall increase of 85 per cent gross for pilots. A KLM spokesman said in London Today, the although these demands are still under review it was clear that they were unreasonable. The KLM authorities in Holland today, sought to arrange alternative flying arrangements for passengers who had made reservations.
