Air Traffic Controllers to Strike




Air traffic controllers at the Ethiopian Civil Aviation Authority have declared a strike to begin on Monday, August 27, 2018. The employees are requesting salary adjustments and improved benefits packages.

Ethiopian Airlines on its press statement announced that the strike would not affect its daily flight schedules.

“The airline has prepared a solution beforehand, and all flights will be conducted on their scheduled time,” the press statement reads.

The air traffic controllers had previously gone on strike last April.

“The last time the strike was related with holiday allowances,” said Animut Lema, promotion and public relations manager of the Authority. “We had reached an understanding back then.”

Air traffic control normally runs with 17 staff at a time. The Authority currently has 80 air traffic controllers.
