Air traffic controllers go on strike in Peru, causing delays to flights
LIMA (AFP) - Air traffic controllers in Peru launched a three day strike on Wednesday to press for salary hikes, causing delays to domestic and international flights.
More than 1,000 unionized controllers are also seeking better working conditions.
Union leader Cesar Palacios said the strike was enjoying widespread support among controllers themselves and administrative staff.
Strikers staged a sit-in outside Lima airport on Wednesday to press their case.
