Malawi Airlines can crew union has vacated a court injunction which the airliner management obtained to stop a strike of pay and poor working conditions.

Malawian Airlines cabin crew to strike

This means that Malawi Airlines workers will go on strike on Monday, demanding pay rise and improved working conditions.

Lawyer for the union Wapona Kita managed to vacate the injunction by the management on Friday in the courts in Lilongwe.

The management earlier sought the court injunction to stop the employees from going on strike after negotiations on pay rise and other issues failed.

Among others, the workers were also against the coming in of four airhostesses from Ethiopia Airlines to work for Malawian Airlines.

Malawian Airlines have since sent back the Ethiopian airhostesses to Ethiopia.

Useless renegade airline, completely disrespectful of its customers. It should be closed and chased out of Malawi.

Strike? Go ahead, we may not even notice. I hope they sack all of you.

Mr. Muluzi is the one to blame to this situation now in Malawi, the old government before Muluzi had so many aircrafts when he (MULUZI) took office he sold all the planes that Dr. Kamuzu Banda bought. I have never seen a country without even a single aircraft like Malawi. Chitani manzazi aMalawi anzanga.

Well maybe if the runway was fixed at Chileka they would use a better bigger plane which is a much better condition than the one they are using now. Ethiopia probably sent their scrap plane which lands in a small capacity since that runway doesn’t look like it’s gonna be fixed soon. Another govt mess up.. Chileka is a major hub in malawi I don’t know why it’s not taken seriously. Kiya, malawi !
