With no news since the end of the long operation was announced, more than 300 Norwegian employees in France have condemned the opaque judicial liquidation.
“The Norwegians now have a false attitude.” Since the last announcement of its long-term operation that led to the closure of the French branch, 286 employees have been accused of trying to evade Norwegian company responsibilities.
“We do not know what they will do with us,” laments Jan Crosen, SNPL union representative (pilots) and secretary of the Socio-Economic Committee (CSE).
“They have blocked our access to internal messaging. They completely cut us off. We do not exist for them. “
On January 14, the airline announced the closure of its long-haul Norwegian Air Shuttle, a French branch comprising 145 pilots, 136 cabin crew and five employees.
Staff representatives have no affiliation with the Oslo-based parent company. This is because Norwegian France is actually owned by a subsidiary based in Ireland, which is established on liquidation.
To approve the liquidation, CSE’s attorney, Mr. Fyodor Rilov, explained that “bankruptcy and the cessation of payments need to be clearly established and demonstrated.”
“We think the group is planning this judicial liquidation for the sake of convenience, to avoid employees working in France, at the expense of wage guarantee insurance,” said Fyodor Relov, the French taxpayer.
A Dublin court will decide on Monday whether to confirm the liquidation. In France, Norwegian workers began procedures to prevent this.
He declined to speak with an AFP-affiliated airline lawyer.
Meanwhile, Jordan Peselek comments that all of this “causes social and psychological distress among employees.” On Wednesday, they were called to protest in front of the Norwegian Embassy in Paris and requested an interview with the Norwegian Ambassador.
