After refusing to increase TAP CEO's salary, chairman of compensation committee resigns

Depois de recusar aumentar salário do CEO da TAP, presidente da comissão de vencimentos demite-se

The chairman of TAP's remuneration committee resigned on Thursday (18) because he disagreed with the proposal put forward to increase the salary of the airline's new CEO.

Tiago Aires Mateus has been pressured by the Ministry of Infrastructure to change the opinion that sets the salary of Luis Rodrigues. The proposal sets a higher amount than that of his predecessor, Christine Ourmières-Widener, dismissed in January this year.

The new CEO accepted the position believing he could receive a similar salary - which will have led the Ministry to pressure Tiago Aires Mateus, write the Portuguese media.

Luís Rodrigues, until then head of SATA, took office in April as CEO and Chairman of the Board of Directors of TAP, succeeding Christine Ourmières-Widener and Manuel Beja, who were removed by the government.

Also in April, he was heard at the TAP commission of inquiry, where he argued that a bonus should not be paid to a manager who has no management contract and who has been dismissed, as is the case with former TAP president Christine Ourmières-Widener.
