Kenya Airways and union in agreement: goodwill working hours continue

11-Jul-2011 10:39 AM

Kenya Airways' (10-Jul-2011) management and the Kenya Airlines Pilot Association (KALPA) have agreed and signed a collective bargaining agreement, stating pilots will now operate as per their schedules and also observe "goodwill" by extending their duty as per the agreement between KALPA and Kenya Airways management. Goodwill is defined as being available to work during off time but within legal limits (Xinhua, 10-Jul-2011). On 09-Jul-2011 the carrier warned passengers of minimal disruptions after pilots withdrew goodwill working hours due to ongoing negotiations with management. Kenya Airways stated that passengers affected by cancelled or delays services will be provided with hotel accommodation or endorsed to travel with another carrier. [more]
