LIAT pilots threaten strike action
The LIAT Pilot\'s Association says it will stage immediate industrial action if the airline goes ahead with plans to base its crew in the Trinidad and Tobago capital Port-of-Spain.
In a statement LIAT said it is considering the move after recent research to assess the costs involved.
The airline says it’s currently spending over US$1 million annually in accommodation for crew members to over-night in hotels in Port-of-Spain.
However the chairman of the LIAT Pilots Association Michael Blackburn says his members are concerned about factors such as crime in Trinidad and will take action against the move.
