Air traffic controllers restive

 

The Jamaica Air Traffic Controllers Association warned on Tuesday night that normal activities cannot be guaranteed due to outstanding wage issues with the Ministry of Finance, with its 2017/2019 wage claim having still not been settled.

Kurt Solomon, President of the Association, told RJR News that air traffic controllers are displeased with how the Finance Ministry has been handling the matter, having “not been able to meet with anybody from the Ministry of Finance, specifically about the negotiation process.”
