The Antigua Barbuda  Workers Union (ABWU) said Wednesday it is yet to receive an update from the Airport Authority, a month after the agency launched an internal investigation into alleged sexual harassment by a head of department.
The authority sent the manager on paid suspension, on September 27, after security staff staged a sit-in and pending the outcome of the probe.
David Massiah, ABWU General Secretary told OBSERVER media he would inquire shortly about the status of the investigation since no one has gotten back to the union on the matter.
He is also the bargaining agent’s industrial relations officer for workers in the civil aviation industry but was away on union business when the labour dispute surfaced a month ago.
“The deputy general secretary dealt with it but now I am back. I am just trying to get some update on it,” Massiah said.
Three reliable sources who wished to remain anonymous informed this newspaper that the probe is ongoing, with the official still on paid suspension.
When contacted Edward Gilkes, acting CEO of the airport authority said he could not speak on the matter because he has “nothing to do with the probe.”
