Despite all the efforts made by the skeyes management, six hours before the start of the national strike, the company does not have sufficient insight into the staffing levels during the industrial action that will start tonight. skeyes' employees do not have to declare their intentions to work or not during trade union actions in advance.
There is no certainty about the number of staff in a limited number of key posts. Therefore, skeyes is forced not to allow air traffic between Tuesday 12 February 10 PM local time and Wednesday 13 February 10 PM.
The management takes its responsibility to guarantee the safety of air traffic. In view of the great uncertainty about the occupation of some crucial posts in the operational services, this guarantee can only be given by not allowing air traffic.
