NUPW writes LIAT on pilots’ behalf
The National Union of Public Workers (NUPW) has written to LIAT on behalf of disgruntled pilots.
Union president Akanni McDowall said the union wrote chief executive officer Julie Reifer-Jones to have the pilots’ grievances addressed.
In response, Reifer-Jones said she had to make checks with the Labour Department in Antigua before they could move ahead.
