Guyana Air Traffic Controllers End Strike

Air traffic controllers in Guyana returned to work February 5 nearly one week after striking, according to the Stabroek News. High on the workers’ list of demands was a 10-percent retroactive payment. While Guyana’s President Bharrat Jagdeo said he made no promise of payment to the workers, he did guarantee that the letters of dismissal they received late at night on Feb. 4 would be rescinded if they returned to work by 2 p.m. Feb. 5. Director of the Guyana Civil Aviation Authority (GCAA) Zulficar Mohammed told the Stabroek News Feb. 5 that the airport had returned to full operations following the workers’ return and night flights resumed after being suspended since Feb. 1.
