According to the union, the meeting between the workers’ representatives and service providers in the privatised control towers, made up of FerroNats and Saerco, was "unsuccessful."

The workers asked for a 5.5% increase in their salary, but at the meeting, Saerco put a proposal on the table to increase the pay for the years 2021 (0%), 2022 (1%), 2023 (2% ) and 2024 (2.5%) that does not meet the expectations of the workers "as it falls far short of their proposal".
