Romania -Court rules air traffic controller strike legal -September 02, 2015

Air traffic controllers staged a two-hour strike on 15 July after collective agreement negotiations broke down. The strike delayed flights scheduled to land and take off from Bucharest’s Henri Coanda International Airport. The Administration of Air Traffic Services (ROMATSA) challenged a strike announced for 1 September in court. The Bucharest Court ruled that the announced strike was legal. The court’s decision is not final, however, and can be appealed. The traffic controllers put forward fourteen demands, including a pay hike and the right of traffic controllers to move to other positions inside the company after they reach the age limit of 55 years. Negotiations over a collective agreement have been going on for months without yielding any results.
