The managing board of the Angolan State-run Airlines (TAAG) is available to hold direct talks with flight crews that partially stopped their activities on Thursday in demand for better salaries, life and health insurance, medical aid for them and their families locally and abroad.
The stand was expressed on Friday in Luanda by the CEO of the company, Pimentel Araújo.
According to him, the workers are demanding from TAAG management a written response to their demands, rather than just direct talks.
He said the company board was calling on the workers to sit down and discuss the demands put forward, some of which easy to settle and others more difficult, but for which an understanding could be reached through dialogue.
Pimentel Araújo added that the workers are demanding better salaries, life and health insurance, medical aid for them and their families locally and abroad.
They are demanding for a 100 to 300 percent salary increase, which the CEO considers unthinkable, in view of the company's financial situation.
He said the board was available to review the salaries of the workers at global level, rather than at flight operation level alone, in the assumption that all employees are necessary and indispensable to the company and deserve all salary benefits and other privileges alike.
