Three senior Air Traffic Controllers have been terminated by the Fiji Airports last week.
The decision comes following their disciplinary hearing before the internal dispute committee.
Meanwhile, another suspended Air Traffic Controller, Kolokesa Kini is awaiting the outcome of the hearing.
Kini who is the spokesperson for the Air Traffic Controllers had taken various forms of leave in March and will know his fate in the next few weeks.
He’s one of the eight employees that went through a disciplinary hearing and did not plead guilty.
Out of the eight, four have been reinstated, three terminated while one is yet to know his outcome.
Some Air Traffic controllers took various forms of leave in March and demanded a salary increase from the Fiji Airports Management.
However, the Arbitration Court had earlier ruled that the group had gone on an illegal strike.
