Independent Pilots Association - Mike Baker - General Manager asked to leave.
I have it on good authority that despite many years of great service to the airline industry the Directors of the IPA marched their General Manager 'Mike Baker' out of the IPA office last month. The IPA Directors have, I am told, made him sign a confidentiality agreement to say nothing..... A somewhat different story to what appears in the current issue of the IPA Skypointer magazine that states: "We are sorry to see him go and wish him well."
Mike is a great chap with great knowledge of the industry who helped me out big time a few years back - it saddens me greatly to see a union behave like this.
Perhaps the directors will allow Mike to tell us the truth?
Rod Bruce, the General Secretary also resigned last year after only a few months in the job as did his assistant!
Sinking ship syndrome me thinks.
