Aviation Nigeria

Workers of the Nigerian Airspace Management Agency(NAMA), on Wednesday, announced plans to embark on one-day warning strike on February 22.

The workers are making this complain under the umbrella of the Air Transport Service Senior Staff Association (ATSSSAN), National Union of Air Transport Employees (NUATE) and the National Association of Aircraft Pilots and Engineers (NAAPE).

The strike is to be embarked over alleged non-implementation of the new salary structure  introduced by  the agency, which the workers have demanded to be implemented.
Addressing newsmen at the NAMA headquarters in Lagos, Benjamin Okewu, National President, ATSSSAN, explained that workers of the agency across the nation would embark on a warning strike to drive home their demand.

“We affirm categorically that failure on the part of NAMA management to implement the approved salary structure is an invitation to industrial crisis,” he said.

"The workers of NAMA, therefore, unequivocally call on NAMA management to immediately and comprehensively implement the reviewed/adjustment of the salary structure of the agency dated Aug. 13 2012.” Okewu added.

He noted that the implementation of the salary would guarantee the welfare of workers, enhance productivity and performance of the agency.
