Norwegian union representatives oppose the CEO’s announcement regarding increased seasonal work.

Last week, Norwegian CEO Geir Karlsen announced that the company would have more seasonal work to compensate for a challenging winter season.

“With that, the management creates new uncertainty,” René-Charles Gustavsen of the Norwegian Cabin Association said in an interview with the newspaper Dagens Næringsliv.

“The employees want more predictability,” Gustavsen told the newspaper.

The leader of the Norwegian Pilot Union, Alf W. Hansen, is also against the plans. He said that all their members are employed full time and that such a solution must be voluntary.

Norwegian’s communications director Esben Tuman responded on behalf of management by saying that management is rebuilding a company that will be smaller than before the reconstruction.

“Everyone in the aviation industry is experiencing variations in demand at different times of the year, and we will continue to find solutions to handle this together with employees, as Norwegian has done over the years,” he said.
