The cao will be retroactive from January 1st, 2008 and effective until December 31st, 2012.

The signing took place in the Curaçao Hilton Hotel in the presence of staff and personnel, members of the Board of Commissioners, representatives of the involved trade unions, and resigned State-Secretary of Traffic and Transport, Julio Constansia (FOL). Government Company ATC at Mahuma officially turned into the incorporated company NAATC on February 9th, 2005, and became operational on April 1st, 2006. The negotiations had started in 2007 and lasted nearly three years. A final agreement approved by all involved parties was concluded earlier this week.
During his speech on the signing occasion, Abvo-Chairman Wendy Calmes dwelled upon the question why the negotiations had taken so long. According to him, the first draft for the first NAATC-cao had not been drawn up by one of the three participating companies, which is why the procedure to realize a new cao took much longer. Just like his colleague trade union leader of Atcana, Joey Wong-A-Tong, Calmes was very pleased with the outcome of the negotiations.
NAATC-director Micilia Albertus-Verboom specifically emphasized she was pleased with the positive outcome of the negotiations and during her intervention thanked everyone who had contributed to the positive outcome of the cao-process.
