Poor Welfare: Aviation Workers Threaten Industrial

The National Union of Air Transport Employees, NUATE; the Air Transport Services Senior Staff Association of Nigeria, ATSSSAN; the Association of Nigeria Aviation Professionals, ANAP and the National Association of Aircraft Pilots and Engineers, NAAPE have said they will no longer accept the deplorable situations its members have had to endure for the better part of the last decade.

In a joint communiqué signed by Deputy General Secretary, ATSSSAN, Francis Akinjole; General Secretary, NUATE, Ocheme Aba; Secretary-General, ANAP, Abdulrazaq Saidu; and Deputy General Secretary, NAAPE, Umoh Ofonime, the workers required the implementation of minimum wage/consequential adjustment that had been on since April 2019 in all the aviation agencies, apart from the Nigerian College of Aviation Technology.

The leaders of the unions also explained that they have had to shoulder intense pressure from their members who have continued to clamour for a review of their conditions of service.

The aggrieved workers also said they would not continue to render services without valid conditions of service.
