No Money No Work – Zim Pilots

Informed sources in the Zimbabwe Flight Crew Association, which represents the pilots told Radio VOP that planes will remain grounded until management pay them.
“All fights will remain suspended until further notice. ZFC have turned down the request to report for duty until our salaries are
deposited into our accounts,” said the source who could not be identified as he is not authorised to speak to the media.
Other sources at the trouble national airline said representatives of the pilots held unfruitful meetings with the board, management and
some officials from the airline’s parent ministry of Transport, Communication and Infrastructure Development in a bid to end the
crippling industrial action.
Air Zimbabwe pilots boycotted work beginning last Friday demanding payment of their outstanding allowances which the state-run airline
has neglected to pay.
The pilots’ strike is just but one of the woes affecting the national carrier. Recently, an Air Zimbabwe jet was forced to abort a flight to Victoria Falls and returned to Harare International Airport after developing a technical fault while in June the national airline ferried 13 passengers from Harare to Johannesburg.
Once one of the best airlines in Africa, Air Zimbabwe has been run down due to successive years of mismanagement and inadequate funding.
