40 takeoffs and landings are scheduled to take place on Wednesday on Bucharest’s Henri Coanda International Airport during the air traffic controllers’ two-hour warning strike, airport representatives told Agerpres on Tuesday.
“According to the flight plans, 22 landings and 18 takeoffs are scheduled on Bucharest’s Henri Coanda International Airport tomorrow (Wednesday – editor’s note), during the strike announced by air traffic controllers,” the sources stated.
Air traffic controllers will go on a two-hour warning strike on Wednesday, from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m., after negotiations with ROMATSA’s leadership failed on Monday in the presence of Transport Ministry Secretary of State Dragos Titea.
According to trade union members, the collective labour contract and the failure to meet 14 of the trade unions’ demands are the reasons for the strike.
“Air traffic controllers will go on strike on Wednesday, for two hours, from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. The causes are the failure to sign the collective labour contract, to reach any kind of agreement following a meeting with the Territorial Labour Inspectorate. We have reached no result,” Andreias Paduraru, Secretary of the Romanian Air Traffic Control Trade Unions (ATSR), stated for Agerpres on Thursday, July 9.
