The transfer of undertakings at AUA seems to become a never-ending story. After months of debates, unsuccessful negotiations, strike threats and heavy disputes, AUA´s management decided to start the transfer of undertakings of its operating part to its own subsidiary Tyrolean. The subsidiary´s collective agreements include substantially lower salaries for pilots.
