Moz national airline crew go on strike

19 November 2012, 14:40

Maputo - Pilots and crew members at Mozambique's national airline have gone on a one-day strike, grounding the carrier.

Linhas Aerrreas de Mocambique Ltd flights out of Mozambique's capital Maputo had been stopped on Sunday by the strike. Workers told journalists that they wanted higher wages and better working conditions.

Joao de Abreu, an official with the state-owned airline, said international flights on Sunday to Kenya, Tanzania and Zimbabwe had been cancelled over the strike.

Late on Sunday night, negotiator Paulo Napoleao said workers struck a deal with the airline to resume flights on Monday. Terms of the deal were not immediately available.

The European Commission banned Mozambican airlines last year from flying from Europe, citing a lack of technicians to implement safety rules.
