The general secretary of the Unified Union of Air Traffic Controllers of Peru (Sucta), Víctor Zavaleta, accused the Peruvian Corporation of Airports and Commercial Aviation (Corpac) of retaliating against the union after the brief strike they carried out on April 14 at the beginning of Easter.
“Although it is true that the strike was for a labor issue, now we are covering everything because there is persecution after the strike. We had already reached an agreement but afterwards there has been a persecution from the Corpac administration”, declared to Successful News.
Zavaleta explained that the state company, by way of retaliation, intends to denounce those air traffic controllers who were present at the demonstration. Even those who are not part of a union and have extensive experience in coordination and supervision positions.
“Air traffic controllers who joined the strike are looking for a way to denounce them. They have begun to remove personnel who have nothing to do with whether they are unionized or not, but who have a lot of experience in coordination and supervision positions, and they are removing them for having joined the strike. They don’t care about security.” said.
However, Zavaleta acknowledged that they are evaluating carrying out another strike, in case President Pedro Castillo does not come up with a solution to this problem.
