The allegations of harassment at the French airline Air France are on the agenda. The French media alleged that the airline had collected a lot of evidence to show that ‘sexual violence’ was largely ignored.
It is stated that the prevention mechanisms applied by the company to prevent harassment and sexist approaches are considered to be inadequate by the unions.
Due to the Corona virus (Covid-19) crisis, the state rushed to the rescue of Air France, whose many planes were connected to the runways. He announced a regular bailout plan and provided 7 billion funds.
It has been reported that sexual and gender-based violence increases due to the economic crisis that comes with the virus, job losses and the use of cheap labor.
ORAL AND PHYSICAL HARASSMENT ALLEGATIONS
In 2018, Air France’s new CEO, Canadian Ben Smith, said the company had a brutal attitude towards sexual harassment and sexist approaches.
The French media also underlined that group dialogues and work are being done against sexual assaults and harassment within the company.
The French media claimed that the hostesses had been verbally and physically abused both by their colleagues and their superiors.
13 WOMEN HOSTES CONFIDED
Speaking to Mediapart, 13 female stewardesses told us that they had experienced these harassment incidents. Although the flight personnel union made statements and statements on the subject, it was reported that the senior executives of the company continue to remain speechless.
In March 2018, a hostess, a captain pilot, and her senior supervisors brought the incident to court as a complaint. The case, which is expected to be held last March, was delayed due to the epidemic.
It is also among the allegations that the complainants put pressure on the hostess to withdraw their complaint.
TARGET OF THE ATTACKS STUDENTS AND SHORTLY EMPLOYEES
The French media reported that the target of the attacks was female employees with short-term contracts and young women who were students.
It was reported that women who were the targets of these attacks could not complain about the harassment incidents due to the fear of losing their jobs. (DHA)
