Tunisia: Tunisair Announces Cancellation of Strike Scheduled for August 29 and 30 in Djerba-Zarzis Airport

Tunis — Tunisair announced Friday the cancellation of the strike of ground staff at the Djerba-Zarzis airport (Governorate of Medenine) scheduled for August 29 and 30, 2014.

The decision follows a working meeting held Thursday in Tunis under the chairmanship of Minister of Transport Chiheb Ben Ahmed, in the presence of representatives of the Tunisian General Labour Union (UGTT) and the General Management of Tunisair, the company said in a statement.

Participants in the meeting reached an agreement on all points mentioned in the notice to strike, Tunisair communication officer told TAP by phone.

The ground staff of Djerba-Zarzis airport, under the UGTT, had staged a strike last August 14, paralysing services at that airport.

Tension had prevailed and passengers gathered in the airport's hall, denouncing this form of protest which, they deplored, do not take into account their interests.
