Jamaican ATC strike: Current Operational Status?

Any info on the current status of the Jamaican ATC strike, the details behind it (is the article quoted below accurate?), and the current effect on flights into/out of Jamaica, if any? Tracking and at least one carrier site currently show plenty of activity.

From RadioJamaicaNewsOnline (can't post links...) 7:42 am, Thu May 12, 2022
Jamaica's airspace was reportedly closed Wednesday night as air traffic controllers scaled back service to protest operational breaches at the Jamaica Civil Aviation Authority (JCAA).

The airspace reopened at 7 o'clock Thursday morning.

The air traffic controllers were reportedly informed by the JCAA's management that the radar system used to man the airspace is faulty and could malfunction.

It's reported that the workers decided on Wednesday to stop carrying out radar services leaving management personnel to carry out those duties.

When contacted, President of the Jamaica Air Traffic Controllers Association, Kurt Solomon, confirmed that the group served an ultimatum on the JCAA to address the deficiencies with the equipment.

Mr. Solomon said the air traffic controllers decided to take action as no time frame was given when the radar equipment would be repaired.

Radio Jamaica News tried unsuccessfully to contact Director-General of the Jamaica Civil Aviation Authority, Nari Williams-Singh.
Thanks, all!
