The Board of Directors of the Argyle International Airport (AIA) was expected, this week, to address the issues said to be affecting workers at the facility.
Minister with responsibility for airports and seaports, Senator Julian Francis, said on radio on February 21 that he was expected to address the meeting which was scheduled for February 23.
In addressing the situation, Francis said that he was not prepared to discuss in detail what the said issues were, but confirmed that the workers had some grievances, and that the Public Service Union (PSU) had been in dialogue with the management at the AIA.
According to the minister, there may be at the airport, which has been in operation for four years, some areas that were required to be reviewed, and that there were some items among those to be addressed that warranted the need for attention now.
The PSU, in a release dated February 17, indicated that among the issues of concern were the non-payment of increments to some workers and provision for uniforms which were said to be last made more than two years ago.
