Mango averts strike woes

2012-11-02 14:46
Johannesburg -  Mango has reportedly reached an agreement with trade union Solidarity following a wage dispute regarding its pilots.

Hein Kaiser, spokesperson for Mango, stated "Mango is pleased to announce that it has reached a wage agreement with pilot body trade union Solidarity. Concomitant to an agreement being reached, Mango can confirm that its holiday season flight operations will not experience disruption as a result of the ended dispute."

According to Tourism Update, Moira-Marie Kloppers, spokesperson for the union, said on Wednesday that should wage negotiations reach a dead-end, a strike certificate would be issued but that the union would only then begin the process of acquiring a mandate from its members.

According to a statement released by Solidarity, Mango pilots earn 30% less than their peers at Comair and 45% less than pilots at SAA, despite Mango being a subsidiary of the national carrier.
