SATAWU responds to spoiled SAA pilots attempt to maintain their ill-gotten apartheid privilege
16 November 2015
The South African Transport and Allied Workers Union (SATAWU) condemns in the strongest terms today’s meeting of the Air Line Pilots’ Association of SA (Alpa-SA).
The sole intention of the meeting called by the SAA branch of Alpa-SA was to table a motion of no confidence in the SAA board.
As a union that organises workers in the sector, Satawu views this move as nothing but a ploy by white pilots to perpetuate white supremacy at the national carrier.
The association claims it is tabling this motion because Chairperson, Dudu Myeni, has on several occasions blamed the airline’s financial troubles on pilots’ exorbitant salaries.
