The ATE leadership in the National Civil Aviation Administration (ANAC) reached a parity agreement and
lifted the force measure that they had announced for next April 5
, the Wednesday before the long Easter weekend and that could having affected all ground control, aviation health and firefighters.
The union headed by Secretary General Alejandro Garzón had announced this week a national strike that reached all 54 airports in the country as a result of a series of breaches regarding what was agreed at the last joint table.
The union representatives held a meeting on Thursday with Paola Tamburelli, administrator of Civil Aviation, who mediated in the conflict between the union and the public management area of the national government.
The conflict originated because the Public Employment Office had not complied with the agreed deadlines "in relation to the modification of the allowance for performance, going to a criterion of 1.5% per year and the increase in the remuneration unit 20% per above the general parity”.
As of the agreement closed in the last hours, those workers who go from one category to another
will receive 100% of their performance allowance
, while if they climb two categories it will be 66%.
In addition, as part of the agreement, the administrator also agreed to take from
4 to 6% the increase
that is granted to the sector every three years of seniority.
They also agreed to advance in the treatment of some pending issues from the last mandatory conciliation, such as the lack of personnel and the repair of Follow Me vehicles, which are the ones used to guide aircraft to their parking position.
The concrete thing is that after this agreement, the union decided to lift the measure of force announced for next week and that threatened to affect the flights scheduled for the Easter holidays.
