Former Airport CEO to File A Claim Of Constructive Dismissal

The man who was the Chief Executive Officer of the Antigua and Barbuda Airport Authority is to take legal action pertaining to his sudden departure.

        Mr Stanley Smith says he intends to take the legal route.

The  Jamaican national  who was first appointed to the post  in 2012, tendered his resignation on Friday moments after he was handed  a letter of suspension for a month with pay.

A leaked report on salary recommendations is at the centre of the controversy.  

Mr Smith said that after looking at the letter, he felt his  integrity  would have been tarnished and  decided to resign.

The former CEO pointed out that the suspension letter was dated May 10th, the very day he was summoned to a meeting.

Meanwhile Industrial relations consualtant Anderson Carty  says his client is being accused of leaking a confidential report to the workers bargaining agent (ABWU) which they were not entitled to for the purpose of putting the union into a better bargaining position.

Carty said that the accusation against his client is very serious and it will not be accepted.

To this end, he said that a claim of unfair dismissal will be filed shortly.
