Due to the delay of about 12 hours, the SriLankan Airlines flight UL 470, carrying the workers leaving for Korean jobs, could not send the group of workers to Korea today.
Minister of Labor and Foreign Employment Manusha Nanayakkara says that the sending of workers for Korean jobs has become a serious problem due to the continuous delay of the flights belonging to the SriLankan Airlines carrying workers to South Korea.
As the 800th group to leave for Korean jobs, the Sri Lanka Foreign Employment Bureau had prepared all the necessary arrangements to send this group to South Korea. Fifty-two workers were supposed to leave for work in the fishing industry in Korea, but due to the delay of the SriLankan Airlines, the Korean Human Resources Department has informed the Sri Lanka Foreign Employment Bureau not to send them to Korea today.
On May 23rd, a flight belonging to Sri Lankan Airlines was delayed and the Human Resources Department of South Korea refused to accept the Sri Lankan workers who were going to leave for Korea on that flight. With the intervention of the Sri Lanka Foreign Employment Bureau, the workers were dispatched to Korea on June 4, but the flight was delayed for two hours on that day as well.
In this way, the delay of the planes belonging to the Sri Lankan Airlines carrying workers for Korean jobs is a serious situation and because of this, the sending of Sri Lankan workers for Korean jobs has become a serious problem, the Minister emphasizes. Minister Manusha Nanayakkara has strongly emphasized that decisions will be made by focusing on this matter
