Air traffic controllers back to work
Air traffic controllers at the Grantley Adams International Airport are back on the job after a work stoppage this morning.
From early this morning, they refused to carry out their duties, protesting poor working conditions.
However, after a meeting involving the National Union of Public Workers (NUPW) and the airport’s management which finished just after midday, the employees went back to work.
NUPW’s Senior Industrial Relations Officer Wayne Walrond said the air traffic controllers were off the job for about five hours.
The strike action, which took the airport authorities and the union by surprise, had affected several flights in and out of the Grantley Adams International Airport but the airport remained open as management manned the control tower.
