An airline has been left in limbo after all its pilots scheduled to work called in sick - forcing it to ground 22 domestic and international flights.
Trinidad-based Caribbean Airlines had to resort to the drastic measure on Tuesday in response to the 'unprecedented action' as the result of what is thought to be a wildcat strike.
In a statement, the airline said that 'many of its pilots who were [on the roster] to operate flights [were] calling in sick'.

It also issued an apology to its 'loyal passengers' and families who were caught up in the action, which has affected all its flights.
The airline flies to and from airports in the Caribbean and major international hubs including London Gatwick, New York and Miami.

 

'This unfortunate situation has disrupted our scheduled services at the beginning of our critical summer season, during which we count most on our operational crews to demonstrate reliability and service for our loyal customers.

'Many families choose this time to travel and have committed hard-earned savings to enjoying this time together.

'To disappoint them will surely be a serious breach of our unspoken contract with them, a betrayal far deeper than even our legal commitment to provide the promised service.'

The airline said that while it is in communication with the Trinidad and Tobago Pilots Association, it 'is disappointed with the action of the pilots'.

TTALPA has not yet commented on the industrial action.

Passengers are advised to confirm their flight times with the Flight Status Tool on the company's website prior to travel.

Show! Não depende de sindicato e não fica a mercê da "justiça" julgar se a greve é legal ou não.... Mas seria um sonho ver isso acontecer na aviação brasileira, seria preciso muita união.

Acho complicado ter que envolver terceiros numa greve... Admitindo que todos estao "doentes" todos tem que apresentar atestado, certo?

Talvez, mas em vários países não é necessário, não sei qual é o caso de Trinidade
