The union representing the employees of Malaysia Airlines has urged for the resignation of the CEO, Ahmad Jauhari Yahya, stating new management is needed to turn around low staff morale.

According to AP, the union’s secretary Mohamad Jabbarullah Abdul Kadir said the airline has been experiencing losses for four years, something which has not been helped by the tragedy and disappearance of flight MH370 in March.

Mohamad Jabbarullah told reporters internal issues had built up over the years, not because of the plane’s disappearance, but because of a failure to engage employees.

“We have lost trust in the current management. Staff morale is very low due to a lack of leadership and direction. We need a new team with experience to turn around the airline,” he told AP reporters.

He also said because the airline staffs 19,500 people around the world, bankruptcy isn’t an option.

Mohamad Jabbarullah said the union has urged Prime Minister Najib Razak to intervene, but the government has said it will not bail out the airline.

Malaysia Airlines’ first quarter losses increased by 59% to 443.4 million ringgit (S$173.4 million). Last year, the total losses reached a high of 1.17 billion ringgit.

The union will submit a memorandum to the Prime Minister soon to appeal for new management.
