Press Release submitted by The Leeward Island Airline Pilots Association (LIALPA)
The Leeward Island Airline Pilots Association would like to inform the General Public that its relationship with LIAT (1974) Ltd is currently strained and has deteriorated to an all time low. The Association since late 2012 has engaged LIAT in negotiations for a new salary structure for its ATR-72 aircraft (not covered under the current MOA) and general salary increases. After years of stalling and legal manoeuvring by LIAT, including the Company filing legal action in both the High Court and Industrial Court, the Association in the spirit of fostering and maintaining a good relationship with LIAT accepted the Company’s salary package offer in January 2017.
LIALPA accepted this deal on the premise that the pilots would make this a one off concession to ensure the survival of the Company.
