Emirates 50% Salary Cuts Will Continue Until September
Emirates salary cuts will continue until September.
According to a report seen by Bloomberg, a memo sent to employees stated that the pay cuts, which were introduced in April for employees of grades 4 and above have been extended until September. Emirates had originally imposed pay cuts of between 25% and 50%, junior employees are not affected by the cuts.
The decision is motivated by the airline’s aim to navigate the negative impact on the business due to COVID-19 and to preserve cash.
Last week, Emirates confirmed some layoffs
We reviewed all possible scenarios in order to sustain our business operations, but have come to the conclusion that we unfortunately have to say goodbye to a few of the wonderful people that worked with us.” – Emirates spokesperson.
