Pilots offered new contracts to work for CAL

PORT-OF-SPAIN, Trinidad, Monday April 23, 2012 – Caribbean Airlines (CAL) is willing to offer the 75 pilots axed last week new contracts.

This comes as CAL closed a Kingston, Jamaica subsidiary company, Caribal Limited, which saw the affected pilots operating Air Jamaica aircraft out of that country.

According to reports, the pilots are now being offered contracts directly with CAL. A release pointed out that the new contracts will see all benefits remaining unchanged.

CAL has also given the Jamaican Airline Pilots Association, the assurance that the pilots’ employment with the airline will see a smooth and seamless transition using a transparent process to ensure smooth and seamless transition.

It is unclear at this time as to if all 75 pilots would accept the new contracts. Click here to receive free news bulletins via email from Caribbean360. (View sample)
