Liat pilots strike

liat1ST. JOHN’S, Antigua, Nov 5, CMC – Pilots employed with the regional airline, LIAT, stayed away from their jobs on Tuesday severely disrupting the schedule of the Antigua-based airline.



A statement issued by the carrier said that it was advising passengers “that due to  action taken  by its airline pilots’ trade union, Leeward Islands Airline Pilots Association (LIALPA), pilots who were scheduled to fly this morning, Tuesday, November 5, 2013, have not reported for duty.

“The company has not been provided with the required notification of industrial action as required under its agreement with the pilots. As a result of the action, some of the company’s morning flights have been disrupted. This is also likely to affect service for the remainder of the day.”

LIAT flies to more than 21 destinations on a daily basis.
