Strike warning at New Caledonia airports

5:51 pm on 28 November 2013

A strike notice has been issued in New Caledonia by air control staff at both the international airport and Noumea's domestic Magenta airport.

They have threatened to stop work on Wednesday as part of a push to get what they call a premium.

An unspecified minimum service would be guaranteed.

The local newsaper says the public sector union has little enthusiasm for the move, fearing it could trigger similar demands across the field.
