Colombian Copa airlines pilots refuse overtime amid row

Friday, October 11, 2013

Pilots at the Colombian operations of U.S.-listed Copa Airline have begun refusing overtime to press demands for a pay rise, their union said.

Their move follows similar actions by pilots at Colombia's Avianca and some local pilots from Chile's LAN.

The union said 131 pilots from the local unit of the Panamanian company, Copa Colombia, were taking part in the "Zero Overtime" movement amid a 20-month long labor dispute which has already been submitted to an arbitration tribunal.
