Airport air controllers plan to go on strike Employees urge DGCA officials to meet their demands

KUWAIT CITY, July 1: Employees at the Air Monitoring Section of the Directorate General for Civil Aviation (DGCA) affirmed their determination to go on a strike if concerned officials fail to meet their demands which they consider as their rights especially since they are involved in a profession that has been categorized as the third most riskiest job in the world, reports Al-Seyassah daily.

The employees explained that their job requires precision, skill and utmost concentration on duty, indicating that the job description laid down by the Civil Service Commission for their job is demeaning because it hardly exceeds one page.

They declared that CSC did not consider the dangers involved in the course of their duty especially if anyone of them loses concentration, indicating the psychological and physical issues they are exposed to while monitoring air because of the serious pressure. They stressed that it is unacceptable for Kuwaiti air controllers to earn salaries that are lower than their peers in the Arabian Gulf and Yemen, adding that Kuwait serves as a major transit for some airliners, which makes their jobs more tedious than those in other countries
