BRIEF-Air France unions call for additional strikes on April 3 And 7

March 26 (Reuters) - Air France KLM SA:

* Air France unions have called for strikes on April 3 and 7, on top of plans to strike on March 30 over a wage dispute.

* Workers are demanding a 6 percent increase in salaries which the company has rejected saying it was impossible to meet in the current financial situation without compromising its growth strategy.

* The unions said a strike on March 23 impacted 53 percent of Air France flights.

* A walkout last month resulted in the cancellation of more than half of the company's long-haul flights. Source text for Eikon: Further company coverage: (Reporting by Cyril Altmeyer Writing by Bate Felix Editing by Richard Lough)
