Taoyuan Flight Attendants Union, via its official Facebook account, announced (07-Jun-2019) its members have voted in favour of going on strike at EVA Air. Taiwan's Ministry of Labour said representatives from the airline and the union will meet on 10-Jun-2019 under the Ministry's mediation to arrange future talks (CNA, 07-Jun-2019).
