国泰航空空姐穿裤子_英语新闻

Female cabin crew at Cathay Pacific have won a battle to scrap a rule forcing them to wear skirts.

国泰航空的女机组人员赢得了一场胜利,即废除了强迫她们必须穿裙子的规定。

The Hong Kong airline has agreed flight attendants can choose to wear trousers, after intense union pressure.

受到来自工会的压力后,该香港航空公司同意,乘务员可以选择穿长裤。

Some crew had complained that wearing short skirts had made them feel uncomfortable - especially when putting bags in overhead lockers or taking public transport to and from work.

一些工作人员抱怨说,穿短裙让她们感到不舒服 - 特别是在高架储物柜里放行李袋或着在上下班时间乘坐公共交通的时候。

But change will not happen until Cathay next refreshes its staff uniforms.

但直到国泰下一次更新员工制服之后,这个变化才会实施。

That could take three years, according to unions.

工会表示,这可能需要三年的时间。

"We welcome and appreciate the company’s decision on giving us an option in choosing uniforms," said Pauline Mak, vice chair of the Hong Kong Dragon Airlines Flight Attendants Association.

“我们欢迎并欣赏公司决定给让我们选择制服,”香港港龙航空乘务员协会副主席Pauline Mak说。

The skirts-only rule has been in place since the airline was founded in 1946 - despite a growing backlash which appears to have gained even more momentum during the #MeToo movement.

自从航空公司于1946年成立以来,穿裙子的规则就已经存在 - 然而#我也是 运动使得对该规则的抗议越来越强烈。

Flight attendants had requested a redesign of their workwear in 2014 - saying the skirts were too revealing and may provoke sexual harassment.

乘务员在2014年要求重新设计他们的工作服 - 说裙子太暴露,可能会引起性骚扰。

Ms Mak said the policy change "not only provides us one more option, but also provides us with protection".

Mak女士表示,政策变化“不仅为我们提供了更多选择,而且为我们提供了保护”。

The airline said uniforms would be re-evaluated for crew working for both its Cathay Pacific and Cathay Dragon carriers.

该航空公司表示,将为国泰航空和港龙航空的工作人员重新评估制服。

"Just as we recognise it is important to provide our customers with more choice, the same is also true for our colleagues," an airline spokesperson said.

“正如我们认识到为我们的客户提供更多选择非常重要,对我们的同事也是如此,”航空公司一位发言人说。
