Strike at Mango Airlines set to continue
Over 100 pilots and other flight crew affiliated to the union are demanding an 8.5% wage hike.
JOHANNESBURG - Trade union Solidarity has vowed to continue its strike at Mango Airlines for a second day with still no agreement to its wage demands.
Over 100 pilots and other flight crew affiliated to the union are demanding an 8.5% wage hike while the employer is offering 6%.
Solidarity says that its members will continue their work stoppage until Mango agrees to renegotiate salaries.
The trade union’s spokesperson Deon Reyneke explains: “The company and Solidarity agreed to meet. From the offset, the company revealed they would not move from the 6%. They started with the 6% and stuck with it until today.”
Reyneke says that they are waiting on management to reschedule a meeting after talks broke down earlier this week.
