Air traffic controllers at the Grantley Adams International Airport remained off the job for the second straight day today, protesting working conditions.
Members of the management team were forced to man the control tower after the workers called in sick.
Deputy General Secretary of the Barbados Workers Union, Dwaine Paul, confirmed to Barbados TODAY that the workers were off the job.
“All of the air traffic controllers are off the job protesting the unsanitary conditions under which they are asked to work. All of the workers reported sick today and the union supports the action taken by the workers,” Paul said.
No one from the Ministry of International Transportation could be reached for a comment on the situation. (NC)
