2017-06-07T021529Z_2103508529_RC18D1106FD0_RTRMADP_3_SINGAPORE-AIRLINES_0Singapore Airlines (SIA) is now offering a new employment drive for the review of the employment structure of having the surplus of the employees, after the company has received the losses.



The scheme is for its cabin crew to go on voluntary no-pay leave (VNPL) for three months starting from September. It is only to address a “temporary crew surplus situation”.



Singapore Airlines (SIA) confirmed that this employment opportunity is to rolling out the voluntary scheme to its 8,200 cabin crew in order to review the performances of the cabin crew of SIA, which is classified into four categories.



It added that having temporary surplus or deficits in cabin crew numbers is not unusual due to the nature of its business. The official of Singapore Airlines said that that the reason of this voluntary scheme is to ensure the airline efficiently, which manages the crew resources and operational requirements.



Singapore Airlines (SIA) sent a notice to its crew this week announcing the beginning of the voluntary no-pay leave (VNPL) scheme for the ranks of Chief Steward-Stewardess and Flight Steward/Stewardess.



The employee structure of Singapore Airlines (SIA) has four ranks in ascending order of seniority: Flight Steward/Stewardess, Leading Steward/Stewardess, Chief Steward/Stewardess and In-Flight Manager.



SIA also reported that the voluntary no-pay leave (VNPL) scheme will give a chance to manage the crew resources.



The airline’s CEO Goh Choon Phong said in June that SIA may cut the jobs as part of a business review after swinging to a S$138 million net loss in its fourth quarter. He also added that the SIA staffs were aware for the reduction of headcount, as the company is now suffering from business losses. The S$138 million net loss was a bleak difference to the S$225 million net profit the SIA group reported in the fourth quarter of the previous financial year.
