Kenyan pilots’ umbrella organization, the Kenya Airline Pilots Association (KALPA), has announced a strike action that would start on November 1, 2022.
The pilots’ union announced its intention to go on a 14-day strike in a letter dated October 19, 2022, addressed to Kenya Airways CEO Allan Kilavuka. The reason given was “grave concerns that we have raised on multiple occasions on behalf of our members which remain unresolved”.
“We have been desirous to resolve these matters through various engagements and we have made a number of pleas to the KQ Leadership to address these matters to conclusion,” the KALPA letter continued.
“However, you [Allan Kilavuka] and the KQ management team remain unperturbed and unbothered to find solutions to these matters that have continued to impact the Pilot fraternity,” the letter read.
