Panamanian Airports Announce Strike

Arguing that a wage adjustment has not been complied with, the Airport Workers Guild will begin protests in the country's air terminals on April 24.

Wednesday, April 24, 2019

Although protests are scheduled to begin on April 24, the Panamanian Airport Workers Union (UTAP) approved a strike call at the five airports administered by Tocumen, S.A. on May 6.

Ramón Sánchez, secretary general of UTAP, explained to Prensa.com that "... on April 24, 26 and 29 there will be protests in Tocumen, Río Hato, Colón, Panamá Pacífico and Chiriquí to demand that the administration of Tocumen, led by Óscar Ramírez, comply with what was agreed in the collective agreement."

Sanchez added that "... in the last year the cost of staff has increased because of the hiring of administrative staff with high salaries, and denounces that the operational and technical part is denied the negotiated adjustment and should be retroactive to February 2017.”
