Tripoli, 16 March 2106(Lana) Workers of air transport sector and those of the supply companies and ground services on Wednesday have staged a protest to press for demands to pay their 7 months delayed salaries. The protests were called by the air transport workers unions, and the General Union of Libyan Workers. An ad hoc committee selected by the unions at the affected companies has reached an agreement to start a strike, which slated to begin on Sunday March 20, and to stage continued protests starting from Wednesday March 16 until the demands of the striking workers have been met, including payment of their salaries which they said have not been paid for 7 months. The committee also underlined the need for tackling all problems banning the Libyan Airlines from meeting its obligations to international organisations, and set up a technical committee to look into the issue of the Afriqiyah Airways plane with the concerned bodies, as well as implementing the Prime Minister's decision No 101 of 2014 over the transfer of air controllers to the Libyan Holding Company. The committee said that in view of non-response by concerned bodies despite the repeated correspondence, we have decided to begin strikes which will start from Sunday March 20 and to continue until our demands have been met. The committee published a timetable for the strike which to start at 6.00 am until 2.00pm on Sunday and Monday March 21 and 22, and from 6.00 am to 6.00pm from Tuesday to Saturday March 26
