García criticized the measure of air traffic controllers: "It is not fair or supportive"

The Minister of National Defense, Javier García criticized the union measure of the air traffic controllers of suspend flights at different times from July 3 to 16 as a claim for different work situations.

It does not seem right to us that every time there is a vacation period there is a conflict“García said this Thursday at a press conference.

It is not fair or supportive with a number of workers who, precisely at this time of vacation, after two years of pandemic, they have their time to resume work on tourism, who are affected by this decision“, held.

“First they took action and then they sat down at the table. I don’t think that’s a good form of dialogue. First you negotiate and if there is no agreement you can take action. things have their order“, he asserted.

García pointed out that the portfolio was complying with everything agreed upon such as “budgets, statements in Accountability, training.” “We ask for a peace clause because we cannot be in this dynamic that when vacations come, measures come: it happened before the end of the year, it happened during Tourism Week, it happens now. You cannot be in this dynamic every three months“, he added.

Actau maintains the measures to suspend flights

Mario Librán, president of Actau, told The Observer that the MTSS, as mediator, presented two items that were accepted by controllers. In these, an agreement was reached for the payment of instructors during 2023and to include an article in the Accountability that guarantees the payment from January 2024. In addition, it was also agreed hold a collective bargaining table to resolve the dispute.

However, Librán denounced that Defense announced to the controllers that they will not include in the Surrender the article that would guarantee equal pay before the same functionitem that was in the collective agreement that both parties they had signed in December 2022and which has been in contention for controllers for a decade.
