Copa Airlines poised to strike after talks standstill

Thursday, June 8, 2017

A strike by 1,000 Copa Airlines pilots on June 15 is looming following the rejection of the latest  pay offer by the company.

The pilots, members of the Panamanian Union of Commercial Aviators, rejected the two economic proposals that the airline presented in the negotiations for a collective agreement that will be in force until 2021.

Luis Young, the union’s leader, said that “negotiations with the  airline are at a standstill.” He said  that the economic proposals presented by the company do not cover the requests made by the pilots.
