Ercan Air Traffic Controllers Union go on 23 hours strike, suspend all flights

The TRNC Air Traffic Controllers Union on Friday launched a shocking 23-hour warning strike at Ercan Airport.

The action started at 9:00pm on Friday, March, 25. With the strike, planes will not be able to land at Ercan Airport. 

The reason for the strike was the retroactive receivables, overtime and non-payment of allowances of the civil servants who were in training.

Cem Kapısız, head of the Air Traffic Controllers Union, conveyed the demands of the employees in his written statement.

We are trying to accustom our people to the hikes and famines caused by the wrong policies of the current government.

Not a day goes by without a raise in basic consumer goods. In the created situation, it is obvious that the salaries of the employees are melting day by day.

Under current conditions, it is essential to protect the salaries of employees against inflation. In this context, the Air Traffic Controllers' Union launched a 23-hour warning strike from 25.03.2022 at 21:20 until 26.03.2022 at 20:20 in order to fulfill the following demands. Our demands are as follows:

Applying a cost of living increase to employees' salaries every two months.

Determining the minimum wage every two months and preventing it from melting in the face of inflation

Paying the debts of the state to the employee (per diems of the personnel abroad, the receivables of the extra-employed personnel) without further dissolution.

Strike Scope:

The strike will be carried out under Ercan Tower control. In case of any attempt to perform the tower control mission, approach and field control will also be included in the strike.

Ambulance planes, state planes and emergency planes will be suspended.

Arrival aircraft, which were under the control of Ercan at the time the strike was announced, will receive service until they complete their landing at our aerodrome and until the take-off aircraft with engine start is transferred to Ankara Control.
