ABWU Secretary General reiterates regional governments must address severance issue in talks over LIAT revival

As Caribbean leaders once again reawaken to the value of a regional airline, Secretary General of the Antigua and Barbuda Worker’s Union (ABWU), Senator David Massiah continues to remind governments of their obligations to former LIAT workers who have been calling for their severance payments.

A week ago, St Vincent and the Grenadines Prime Minster Ralph Gonsalves criticised InterCaribbean Airways for its service, stating that he was awaiting proposals for a new LIAT.

Previously, government officials in Guyana, especially Aviation Minister Juan Edghill, also complained about the Turks and Caicos based airline.

Edghill said that senior government officials, as well as representatives of the Guyana Civil Aviation Authority, met with the representatives of the airline to address the issue, warning that they could face sanctions if its flights delays issues were not sufficiently alleviated.

This follows months of irritated Caribbean customers who complain of long flight delays, leading to frequent missing of international connecting flights, which has forced many to purchase new tickets for flights.
