Bolding is mine
I think you are confusing with another strike here. The summer 2016 one was a PNC strike which was not too long even if of course it had some effects. The hard pilot strike was in september 2014 (2 weeks strike) but they obtained almost nothing IIRC. It was a real fiasco for SNPL even if they never admitted it publicly to not loose face.
