(MENAFN) Bahrain's Gulf Air Trade Union has rejected a redundancy offer by troubled Gulf Air, Gulf Daily News reported.

The offer package was that staff laid off will receive 30 days' salary for every year they had worked, in addition to a bonus payout and another three months' salary.

The new deal, brokered by Labour Ministry Under-Secretary Sabah Al Dossery, did not meet the demands of the union, which are two months' pay for each year's service and USD13.2 bonus, union spokesman Mohammad Mahdi said.

The paper cited Mahdi as saying: "We didn't only refuse that deal, but the whole restructuring process, and for good reason".

The loss-making Bahraini flag-carrier has suffered due to strong competition from nearby Emirates Airline, Qatar Airways and Etihad Airways, and cut eight non-performing routes last year

In January, it was reported that more than 1,200 staff could lose their jobs as part of a major restructuring process at the airline.
