Monrovia: Liberia could have gotten into a serious aviation problem, when aggrieved workers of the Robert International Airport, held an international flight hostage, in protest of salary demands.
Well, after such degrading action on the part of Liberia, the Ministry of Labor has announced, that it has finally resolved the dispute between the management of the Roberts International Airport and the RIA Workers Union.
According to the striking employees, the blocking of commercial planes from taking off at the runway at the airport, was meant to claim the attention of the Liberian government.
Minister of state for presidential Affairs, Nathaniel Mcgil had to rush on the scene , after the aggrieved workers refused his instruction to allow the aircraft take off.
But addressing a news conference following a brief discussion with the RIA Management and Workers Union, Labor Minister, Cllr. Charles Gibson, said that the two parties have finally settled the matter.
The Labor Minister however blamed the strike action on the alleged failure of the Management of the Roberts International Airport to effectively communicate to the affected workers about the outsourcing of some departments.
Also speaking, the President of the RIA Workers Union, Baryou Wallace apologized for the embarrassment brought to the country as a result of their strike action
