Cabin crew complain of sexism

Published torsdag 25 juli 2013 kl 19.35

Over one hundred cabin crew at Scandinavian airline SAS have filed a complaint against the airline and a trade union to Sweden's Equality Ombudsman, complaining of sex discrimination.

The crew claim that a collective agreement agreed between the airline and trades union Unionen in November was discriminatory, as pilots and cabin crew got different pension deals.

The new collective agreement was drawn up following economic troubles for SAS, and meant amongst other things higher pension ages for employees. Pilots got a different deal to the cabin crew.

Most SAS cabin crew are female, while most pilots are male, Swedish Television news reports.
