LIAT pilots "we will strike if we are based in Trinidad"

LIAT pilots threaten strike action

Liat's Pilots Association says it will stage immediate industrial action if the airline goes ahead with plans to base its crew in the Trinidad capital Port-of-Spain.

In a statement Thursday, Liat said it is considering the move after recent research to asses the costs involved.

The airline said it is currently spending over US$1 million every year to accommodate crew members over-nighting in hotels in Port-of-Spain.

But the chairman of Liat's Pilots Association, Michael Blackburn, told BBC Caribbean his members are concerned about the risk factors - especially crime - of being based in Trinidad, and will take action against the move.
