Airports shutdown looms as aviation workers plan to embark on strike action


By Isa Sa’ad, Dutse

Poor renumeration of service may force aviation workers to embark on strike action.

According to a memo signed by the leadership of five unions, an indefinite strike will ensue if the two-day warning strike fails.

The unions include the National Union of Air Transport Employees (NUATE), Air Transport Services Senior Staff Association of Nigeria (ATSSSAN), and the Association of Nigeria Aviation Professionals (ANAP).

Others are the National Association of Aircraft Pilots and Engineers (NAAPE), and the Amalgamated Union of Public Corporation Civil Service Technical and Recreation Services Employees.

The workers are aggrieved over the more than seven years of delays in reviewing their Condition of Service (CoS) as negotiated between them and four aviation agencies.
