THE GRANTLEY ADAMS International Airport has been closed for the time being as air traffic controllers remain off the job.

This was the word coming from GAIA operations manager Jason Inniss who spoke to NATION ONLINE moments ago.

“We have information from them indicating that they’re aiming to open by 6 p.m. tonight,” Inniss said.

The air traffic controllers are said to be acting in solidarity with their colleagues at the Barbados Water Authority who have been on strike since last Wednesday.

The Barbados Workers’ Union has argued that the BWA dishonoured a number of commitments made in relation to the payment of increments to workers.

Meanwhile, workers at the Bridgetown Port are also off the job in a similar show of support.(AD/BN)
