Union win! Kuwaiti union thanks ITF for support
26 Nov 2019
A civil aviation union in Kuwait has postponed all forthcoming industrial action after winning concessions from the government.
Members of the Civil Aviation Labor Union of Kuwait had planned to take action, including strike action, over a dispute with the Director General of Civil Aviation (DGCA).
However, the DGCA agreed to enter negotiations with the union and fully engage on all issues at the centre of the dispute. The DCGA also agreed to discuss the need to improve the financial situation for all civil aviation workers.
The union thanked the ITF for its support, including the general secretary Stephen Cotton, and said it could not have achieved this breakthrough without the intervention of the ITF.
