Monday May Be Day To Avoid Israeli Airports
It may be a bumpy day for Israeli
aviation Monday, according to Haaretz news service, as Civil
Aviation Administration (CAA) employees protest recent
administration structural changes by disrupting aviation traffic,
CAA employees decided on Sunday to begin protests, which may
result in a total strike. They claim changes were made by
management without their involvement.
Their action means that planes not on the flight schedule will
not be allowed to land; extra flights and charters added to the
flight plan will therefore be unable to land in Israel Monday.
In addition on Monday, CAA employees will not conduct periodic
examination on planes, which may see some aircraft unable to renew
flight licenses; aviation industry projects may be disrupted if
they require approval of the CAA; and pilot and technician exams
will not be administered.
At issue for workers are management changes that hurt their
professional status a well as their pocketbooks, including the
recent outsourcing for new jobs before discussing if first with CAA
employees or the Histadrut Labor Federation.
