AeroMexico pilots may begin strike on Monday October 1, 2018 if they are unable to reach an agreement with the the airline over the weekend.
The disagreements are about pay raise and how long the new contract should be valid for. Pilots are not satisfied what AeroMexico has offered and would prefer shorter contract.
Here’s an excerpt from Excelsior (Google translate – access here):
Until the night of this Friday continues the strike site of the Aeromexico pilots for the first minute of Monday.
The company’s last offer was to offer them an increase in line with inflation over the next four years, that is, almost five percent, but pilots are asking for a seven percent increase.
The Assembly of Trade Union Association of Aviator Pilots of Mexico unanimously rejected this proposal because they do not want the contract to four years.
Rafael Diaz Covarrubias, general director of the ASPA, reported that this Saturday at noon have another meeting at the Ministry of Labor with the company, to continue with the negotiation and then the Assembly will continue today to declare in recess, to determine if the thousand Aeromexico pilots explode the strike or not.
There is no information about this possible strike beginning tomorrow on AeroMexico’s website. I guess that the airline hopes to reach and agreement with its pilot union at some point today to avert the pending work action.
