ALL PALPA MEMBERS:
The President and the Executive Committee met the Chairman PIAC today i.e. 13th July 2015 to seek clarification on the rumours regarding the issuance of contracts to pilots.
During the meeting, in presence of the DFO, the Chairman categorically stated that neither he nor the DFO have any details of contracts being issued to pilots. He however, confirmed that Mr. Shujaat Azeem Special Assistant to the Prime Minister on Aviation is preparing a document which will offer contractual jobs to PIA pilots. The Chairman further stated that he can give his views on the contents of the said document only after seeing it.
The Executive Committee also reiterated stance that if any such move to issue contracts is undertaken then it should be through PALPA, as the Association is the bargaining representative of all pilots of PIA.
You are requested to kindly contact any Executive Committee Member to seek further clarification on any issue.
With Best Regards,
Capt. Sohail Ahmed
LONG LIVE THE UNITY OF PILOTS
