Some of these workers are even widows who vowed that in case “our problems are not solved in the next few days, a real strike will come”.


Several workers told Chimpreports that their landlords have lost trust in them and majority of them have been evicted form the houses they rent.

They claim that even the working conditions are poor as majority of them do not have protective gears, especially those who work in toilets.


Yesterday, some of the workers at the Airport were pretending as if they were working but in real sense, they were just passing time.


This was evidenced by the stinking toilets at the facility.

When contacted, the Civil Aviation Authority Public Relations Officer, Vian Luggya, told us that the authority gave the contract to Guardian Cleaning Services Limited and they remit their funds in time as stipulated in the contract.


“In fact, we are also disappointed with this company for having failed to pay their workers in time, but we will ensure that we cooperate to solve this matter,” Luggya explained.


Normally, Civil Aviation Authority contracts a company to do services through an agreed contract for a certain period of time.


The Secretary General of Uganda Transporter’s Workers Union, Aziz Kirya, confirmed that he talked to the concerned parties and they have promised to work on matter.
