According to a communiqué from the air carrier, the memorandum signed with the Union Bureau "reinforces consultation between the parties in a document that formalizes the principles of the TAAG/Union relationship" and the priorities for the ongoing negotiations "in a collaborative setting and openness to dialogue ".
According to TAAG, it was agreed that negotiation will be preferred over initiatives that interrupt the continuity of the operation, joint efforts to obtain fair solutions and mutual balance of interests, as well as responses to the concerns of employees compatible with the financial reality of the airline. .
"The TAAG Administration reiterates once again that it is open to dialogue with all unions, being equally available and working towards consensus solutions with the SPLA [Airline Pilots Union] and SINPROPNC [Provincial Union of Cabin Navigator Personnel ]", underlines the statement.
At the beginning of the month, the Angolan Transport Minister called on the Cabin Sailing Personnel Union (SPNC) to "recommend" that they exhaust the channels provided for by law and dialogue with the administration of the TAAG airline to resolve the "divergent issues", in following a protest by these workers.
The official also warned of the need for TAAG to improve communication, stating the need for the Board of Directors to open "space for dialogue with the class and listening to their concerns and concerns in a civilized and urban way".
Concerns about the future of TAAG had already given rise to a public clarification of the airline in the form of an interview with the chairman of the board of directors, Ana Major, after it was announced that the operation in Lisbon would adopt the GSA model ( General Sales Agent), with the scale being managed by the Summerwind GSA entity.
In that document, Ana Major denied the sale of TAAG to a Spanish group and said that the company would not close in Portugal.
