Former workers of the now defunct Antrak Air have expressed their dissatisfaction over the National Labour Commission's (NLC) slow pace in securing their unpaid salaries from their employer.

Some months ago, aggrieved workers of the airline petitioned the NLC to address issues surrounding their unpaid salaries and other entitlements.

Reports show that Antrak Air owes these workers over 12,000 cedis salary arrears and some outstanding entitlements including a 12 month transport allowance.

According to the distressed workers, management of Antrak Air served them a memo that it was suspending flight operations for three months to restructure. They were however assured of a call back after the restructuring.

Conversely, these workers say, they have not been called, adding that the company has since ceased operations.

This development has received a widespread criticism from the aggrieved former workers.

The Executive Secretary of the NLC, Charles Adongo Bawa Duah say the commission has already taken steps to deal with the issue to commence hearing on the substantive matter.

However, Gilbert McCaurey, the leader of the aggrieved workers, says NLC's pace at resolving the issue is not encouraging.

He further explains that all arrangements put in place by the workers to meet the CEO of Antrak Air Alhaji Asumah Banda have proven futile.
