Cancun Interjet employees protest lack of pay

Cancun, Q.R. — A group of Interjet employees protested along a busy city Cancun roundabout Sunday claiming unpaid wages. The group says the company has not fulfilled its agreements and commitments acquired by executives, who met recently with officials from the Ministry of the Interior.

On November 4, Interjet executives attended a meeting summoned by the Ministry of the Interior regarding employee demands of late payments. In a statement, the company explained that the delay is the result of the reduction in operations due to the pandemic and a reduction in the company’s cash flow.

Days later, Interjet employees began a demonstration saying the company still has not paid them.

Last month, the Federal Consumer Prosecutor’s Office (Profeco) reported “Interjet has been facing various problems in its commercial operation for several months, including the suspension of various international routes, lack of payment to its personnel, suspension of the license to operate the international air service to Canada and the seizure of bank accounts, goods and brands by the tax authority.”

In their statement, they also add an “alert about the risk of establishing commercial relationships with Interjet, due to repeated breaches of the legal provisions to the detriment of consumer rights.”

On their website, Internet has announced the temporary suspension of all its international flights.
