Polish flag carrier LOT laid off 67 employees in Warsaw on Monday, October 22, for work absences related to an ongoing strike. Employees are reportedly protesting the state-owned airline's alleged unfair employment practices and demanding better working conditions. Strike-related disruptions, including associated air transportation delays and cancelations, are possible in the coming days.
Workers' unions are protesting over the self-employment contracts used by LOT to recruit pilots and cabin crew and demanding better working conditions.
Travelers are advised to monitor developments to the situation and to confirm the status of their flights prior to departure for the airport.
