The Panhellenic Telecommunications Association (AFISO) of HCAA has announced that it will go on a 24-hour strike on Monday, July 11. A relevant decision of the General Assembly had preceded it on June 9.
The announcement of the Panhellenic Telecommunications Association:
WE ARE ON STRIKE
Immediate implementation of the eleven (11) redeployments from the wider public sector, which has been pending for a considerable period of time, with the result that colleagues are burdened and their work is made significantly more difficult.
Immediate return of 2% of EUROCONTROL allowance, which was unfairly taken from our industry in favor of another industry (Electronics/ATSEP), who are better paid than us anyway, despite constant assurances and written promises from the Ministry about removing the injustice.
AFIS monthly allowance for employees stationed at airports where AFIS is provided and commuters thereto.
For a year now, we have exhausted every means of discussion and communication with the Administration and the Ministry regarding the promotion of the problems of our sector, receiving only promises to resolve our requests, until the end of May.
The closure of the airports (Ikaria, Milos 3 times, Kozani, Naxos, Kastoria), because the only AFISO employee fell ill, shows that our work is also a social project and our problems are inextricably linked to serving the essential needs of the residents of critical islands and regions of our country.
Airport staff shortages have a direct impact on aviation security, which cannot be provided by a CAA branch generously supported by political leadership alone.
The intensification of our work due to an increase in traffic and a decrease in our staff was combined with a decrease in our salaries!
Promises with a horizon of constantly renewed deadlines turned out to be “hollow” and empty of content. It is now clear that the decisions and intentions of the Administration and the Ministry are different from our interests which also serve the societies of the critical islands and regions
