Recently, there has been conflict between the management and the pilots over pay cut and reviewed remuneration. Sources say those affected are those signatory to the agitations
You may recall that there had recently been lingering disagreement over pay cut and reviewed remuneration between the pilots and the management, which has finally culminated to the sacking of some pilots.
The management had proposed the pay cut barely on resumption of flights after over four months of suspension, arguing that continuing with the extant salary structure was not sustainable in view of the low passengers’ turnout.
According to sources, the management had been engaging the pilots to see reason for the pay cut which it said was beyond it in view of the negative impact of COVID-19 on the aviation business.
Air Peace is a private Nigerian airline founded in 2013 with its head office in Lagos State, Nigeria. Air Peace, which provides passenger and charter services, serves the major cities of Nigeria and flies to several West African destinations and the Middle East.
