Rally in support of Air Tahiti Nui boss

1:35 pm on 12 July 2011

A demomstration has been held outside the French Polynesian assembly in support of the head of Air Tahiti Nui who is expected to be sacked this week.

The rally has been organised by four key unions which are adamant that Cedric Pastour should not be dismissed.

An undertaking to have him removed was given by the President Oscar Temaru earlier this month when a five-day strike by some crew members was called off.

A one-day strike has been called to coincide with the rally but its effect is expected to be minimal because flights have been rescheduled.
