The threatened strike action by the Garuda Pilots Association (APG) for “sometime” in September might be averted if an agreement on pilot remuneration can be achieved.

Tempo Interaktif quotes the chairman of the APG, Stephanus Gerardus Setitit, saying: “If there is good intentions from Garuda, we will not go on strike. But the final results are not guaranteed, as this is only a promise (from the airline).”

Stephanus confirmed that the APG has met with the directors of Garuda last Friday. “This was a continuance from the deadlocked negotiations held at the end of August,” he explained.

One of the results of the latest meeting was the establishment of remuneration review team. Stephanus added: “I have just selected our representatives. The team will be formed this week.”

The APG chairman said the review team will work until the end of October after which their mutually agreed recommendations will be included in the Companies work plan in November and presented for approval at the next meeting of shareholders.

He also confirmed to the media that the most recent meeting was conducted in a positive atmosphere.

As regard the unhappiness with the higher wages paid to foreign pilots, Stephanus said Garuda has promised to give their foreign pilots the choice of ending their work contracts or taking a pay cut. “The have promised to do this quickly, but until now we have not seen a copy of the letter,” said Stephanus.
