MED 8.2.5 WORK AS ATCO WHEN PREGNANT

 

IFATCA Policy is:

Pregnancy is a normal female human condition which shall not result in automatic suspension of an ATCO’s licence.

When considering the design of the workplace and working conditions, employers should also take into account the requirement of pregnant ATCOs.

Pregnant ATCOs shall have the right to expect that the possible physiological problems associated with pregnancy will be accommodated by their employers in the form of available relief staff.

Pregnant ATCOs should have the right to transfer temporarily from shift work to daytime working if they so choose.

Pregnant ATCOs should have the right to transfer temporarily to non-operational positions if they so choose.

When recommended by a pregnant ATCO’s own physician adequate leave with pay should be provided.

Adequate maternity leave, together with protection of the equal opportunity rights of pregnant ATCOs, should be provided.

A pregnant air traffic controller should not, if she so chooses, work in front of cathode ray tube (CRT) and/or Visual Display Unit (VDU) screens during her pregnancy.
