Copa Airlines will recognize the payment of overtime to its more than 1,000 pilots as part of a labor agreement reached this week. 

This was one of the points agreed by both parties at dawn yesterday and led to the signing of the terms of the collective agreement that will be in force until 2021. 

This agreement avoided a strike that had been threatened by the pilots. 

Jaime Cohen, representative of the union representing the pilots, commented that in general terms a wage and benefit adjustment of 23 percent was achieved, noting that they are still working together with the Ministry of Labor and Labor Development on the economic points established in the collective agreement. 

The agreement will also cover payments for flights that pilots have to make at night.

In a brief statement, Copa Airlines reported that the agreement "provides fair compensation" to its pilots, while allowing it to continue working focused on maintaining itself as a solid and stable company for all employees. 

Among other points that will be included in the collective agreement is the creation of a compensation system for seniority, as well as a private retirement plan.
