published: Sunday | October 2, 2005

WESTERN BUREAU:

INCENSED TAXI operators at the Sangster International Airport (SIA), Montego Bay used their vehicles to block the roadway to the facility, locking visitors and other airport users on the premises and cutting off traffic in and out of the city yesterday morning after they were barred from their holding area.

According to JUTA president Garfield Williamson, they were informed by the duty manager at MBJ Limited - the airport's operators - that they were locked out due to "the non-payment of outstanding fees" and that a letter on the matter was sent to them. The drivers have denied receiving any such correspondence. One hundred and ten taxi operators work from SIA; 66 JUTA members and 44 from JCAL. The Sunday Gleaner understands that a meeting is set for tomorrow morning to address the matter
