Air Traffic Controllers have Govt’s ear

Senator Irene Sandiford-Garner told the Upper House yesterday that the men and women responsible for the safety of thousands of passengers and aircraft coming into Barbados’ air space, had legitimate frustrations that had led to previous work stoppages.

She was leading debate on the Civil Aviation Amendment Bill 2016, which was subsequently passed.
