Capt. John Prater (pictured below), president of the Air Line
Pilots Association, Int’l (ALPA), has issued a statement
supporting the Asociación Sindical de Pilotos Aviadores de
México in urging the Mexican government to work with airline
employee unions to address economically challenging times.
“The Air Line Pilots
Association, Int’l, stands with the pilots of
Asociación Sindical de Pilotos Aviadores de México in
strong solidarity. We urge Mexico’s government leaders and
its airlines to work with employees to forge the long-term
solutions that are required to take on the economic challenges the
airline industry faces in Mexico and around the globe.
“The recent attempts to lay off hundreds of workers and
radically restructure Mexico’s airline industry in a way that
risks many airline workers losing—or being denied—union
representation are not the answer.
“A successful strategy to meet the challenge must include
all industry stakeholders—government, airlines, and
employees—working together to develop creative solutions
built on consensus that will foster a stable airline industry for
the long term.
“Through such a collaborative process, Mexico can maintain
a healthy, competitive, and safe national air transportation system
to the benefit of all, including the thousands of passengers safely
flown every day by the professional airline pilots of the
