Dutch airline KLM wins case against pilot union over pensions indexation

first_imgAn Amsterdam court has ruled that Dutch airline KLM is under no obligation to plug a funding gap at its pension fund for pilots that would allow the scheme to grant full indexation.In summary proceedings brought by union VNV, the court decided that KLM’s expected additional contribution – estimated at €600m by the airline – was large enough for the company to cancel its agreement to meet a funding shortfall.The court also ruled that the agreement, terminated unilaterally by KLM, had not been covered by a binding collective labour agreement (CAO) between the employer and the pilots union.KLM had argued that it would have had to pay €600m by the end of this year as a consequence of the new financial assessment framework (nFTK), which increased the required funding level for full indexation from 105% to 122%. It said it could not afford to pay the additional premium, which the union estimated at €115m.The court said KLM  and the union could not have foreseen the financial effects of the nFTK when the pilot-scheme agreement was made in 2007.It also ruled that the four-month notice given by KLM had been sufficiently large, adding that VNV could have seen it coming.The court pointed out that planning for the nFTK had already begun in 2012, from which point the airline requested a new, more sustainable agreement.It did not, however, address the VNV’s argument that the pension fund reimbursed KLM €250m in the past.The union said it was now weighing its legal options.The €8.2bn Pensioenfonds Vliegend Personeel KLM, which also recently announced “legal steps” against the airline, declined to comment on its position.Last week, it said it would focus its case on KLM’s unilateral decision to cancel its contract for pension provision with the pension fund.It previously claimed that KLM lacked an important reason for terminating the contract and that the employer had given too short notice.It also argued that a premium reduction for KLM – agreed two years ago – could not be reconciled with the company’s decision to cancel its agreement.last_img read more

Aikey tops Yankee, Kay repeats as Deery Series champion

first_imgFARLEY, Iowa (Sept. 19) – Jeff Aikey and Justin Kay both posted second straight wins Saturday at Farley Speedway’s Yankee Dirt Track Classic.Aikey backed up his IMCA Speedway Motors Super Nationals fueled by Casey’s victory with a convincing run to the $7,500 checkers ahead of Nick Marolf in the 100-lap Deery Brothers Sum­mer Series main event.Kay finished third and cemented his second consecutive IMCA Late Model tour championship.Scott Fitzpatrick led the first 10 times around the oval before the fourth starting Aikey took charge. Marolf was able to make up ground as Aikey worked his way patiently through lapped traffic, but was never able to catch the leader.“I tried to keep the car as straight as I could and didn’t slide the tires. Some other guys had flats but my tires could have gone another 35 laps, easy,” Aikey said. “I’ve been to a lot of Yankees and I was impressed with the track. It didn’t rubber down and you could race all over it.”“The car was extremely balanced. My crew set it up perfect,” Aikey added, pointing to the efforts of Dwain Homolar, Curt Wollin, Marc Homolar, Chad Kinkaid and Craig Lindsey. “”They worked their tail off so my car was tremendously good. Jiminy Christmas, we were talking about do we keep it or do we sell it. I don’t know.”Aikey pulled away following cautions on laps 52 and 78 and raced to series career win number 66. Marolf, Kay, Richie Gustin and tour rookie of the year Tyler Droste rounded out the top five.“I still get excited about winning,” Aikey said. “I asked Dwain if he’d be with me long enough to get to 100 and he just laughed. We’ll go as long as we can go.”Making his 451st consecutive start and keeping his Deery Brothers perfect attendance streak in­tact through 29 seasons, Darrel DeFrance won the last-chance qualifying feature as well as the $250 Sunoco Race Fuels feature qualifier drawing.While the Friday program was rained out, Saturday’s Yankee show brought 59 Late Models to Farley, the top entry number for the series this season.Troy Cordes won the Xtreme Motor Sports IMCA Modified Hawkeye Dirt Tour feature and $2,000.
