AEROMEXICO SLASHES BENEFITS, PILOTS WING UP A STRIKE
News by Editorial Team 12 Sep 2018
Mexico’s largest airline, Aeromexico, is facing a backlash for cutting down on benefits after one of their aircraft crashed in July. The benefits cut-down, which affects around 2,400 pilots was in addition to three pilots who have been fired already. It drew a lot of flak from Asociación Sindical de Pilotos Aviadores (ASPA), the aviation workers’ union in Mexico. The strike, which has been called on the 1st of October, poses significant risk to travelers and business passengers, while also signaling further complications in the already volatile work conditions in global aviation.
