By Theresa Goodwin (Antigua Observer) Over 15,000 people have signed a petition that has been launched by former LIAT employees on Change.org. The goal is 25,000 signatures.
The petition was launched on April 30 by several former employees who say they are “disappointed and frustrated” by the way they have been treated over the last two years by the governments of Antigua and Barbuda, Barbados, St Vincent and the Grenadines, and Dominica, all of whom are the major shareholders of LIAT, which has been an essential airline serving the Caribbean
They have called on the respective leaders of these territories to bring about a resolution to their longstanding issues.
The workers lost their jobs when the airline closed, and many are still owed vacation pay and severance.
