The Kenya Airline Pilots Association (KALPA) are requesting Mutual Assistance on behalf of Kenya Airways (KQ) pilots.
IFALPA has been informed that the KALPA pilots intend to act on their Strike Notice on 5 November 2022. This comes following Kenya Airways’ management failing to comply with mutually signed agreements. In addition, there is a widespread antagonistic and hard-line position against the pilots' terms and conditions of employment. Furthermore, the airline management has issued communications to individual pilots threatening them against taking part in the planned industrial action. The company appears to be indicating a reluctancy to address the outstanding matters or even recognizing the Association.
Therefore, KALPA is requesting the Mutual Assistance as outlined below as per the IFALPA Industrial Manual starting on Saturday 5 November 2022 at 0300 UTC, and until further notice; and further requests letters of support for Kenya Airways pilots to be sent to the attention KALPA's General Secretary Captain Murithi Nyagah [email protected]
