Air France flight attendants considers an indefinite strike, as the employees were required signing a contract with the management of the airline for a minimum of 5 years. The representatives of the trade union of cabin crew (CFTC), indicated that the contract for an indefinite term of employees is not satisfied, as it can be canceled by the airline management in the near future, and the signing of a new agreement will be possible only after 15 months.
