The British Airline Pilots’ Association (BALPA), today gave easyJet shareholders attending today’s Annual General Meeting a message urging them to look past the company’s recent spin on pilot jobs and to ask important questions of the board.
BALPA General Secretary, Jim McAuslan, has written to Sir Michael Rake, the Chairman of easyJet, about their recent move to force young pilots into signing new contracts and the spin the company has been putting on this move.
Jim McAuslan, BALPA General Secretary, commenting on easyJet’s announcement today about a new contract for some pilots said: ‘easyJet has been dragged kicking and screaming by BALPA into offering a permanent contract to some of its growing casual pilot workforce. But, despite the spin in today’s easyJet announcement, this “take-it-or-leave-it” contract is being denounced by pilots across easyJet.
