Caribbean Airlines’ chief executive officer Peter Davies could be in receipt of handsome salary and fringe benefits—anywhere in the region of £50,000 (about $655,000) a month.
This is according to local airline sources, who offered that figure yesterday, after the Government pointedly ducked a question concerning the remuneration of Davies, a 56-year-old British citizen.
The refusal has attracted a stinging accusation that the Government believes it can spend taxpayers’ money with impunity.
In a written answer filed in the Lower House on Friday in response to a question tabled by Caroni East MP Ganga Singh, the Government refused, on the grounds of confidentiality, to divulge Davies’ terms of employment.
Singh had demanded that the Government also account to the Parliament on the remuneration earned by two other expatriates: Francois Parisseau, Caribbean Airlines’ director of marketing, and Anne Cole, vice president, human resources.
The answer provided on Friday by Leader of Government Business Ken Valley indicated the terms, conditions and salary of the trio “were considered to be of a competitive nature, and release of this information into the public domain is considered prejudicial to the airline’s strategic and competitive position.
5 and ah half mill ah month.
To fockin fire the entire mudda cont staff, sell the fockin Heathrow slots, crush the fockin union and allow Joanne Edwards to niggerise the entire operation.
I coulda do that.
In all seriousness though. Ganga and Valley done ha dey deal goin down with CWee, the new airline wid dem Constellation people.
So is jus to fock the ole bwee to the cross now, like Valley did wid Acker the last time around.
