Airport authorities say the country's main international airport needs to close at 6 PM to relieve the senior managers who are directing traffic.
The strike began on Friday night over union demands for salary increases of 5%.
The government says it cannot grant the pay hikes because it needs to upgrade airport safety equipment. Trinidad-based Caribbean Airlines flights have been affected by the early closure. The airline has been forced to cancel flights in and out of Guyana.
