Top Local Trade Unionist Calls For Liat Management To Go

The General Secretary of the Antigua Workers union is calling for the dismissal of the entire management of regional carrier Liat.

Mr David Massiah, told a  labour day rally of the Antigua Trades Union Congress, that the management of the carrier  has been making major mistakes over the years and nothing for it.

The Antiguan trade unionist expressed the view that everytime the carrier is in trouble, workers are called upon  to make sacrifices.

“the management  are always sitting pretty, while the workers are always being called upon to take salary cuts,” messiah said.

Recently he also called on the Antigua and Barbuda Government to buy the Barbados shares in the regional carrier,

He said the jobs that left Antigua when Barbados bought the majority  shares, need to be brought back to the country.
