Aviation unions shelve strike action

Aviation Nigeria

An intended strike action by two industrial unions of the aviation sector has been shelved aside.

This was made known in a press release by the Special Adviser to the Honorable Minister of Aviation, Joe Obi.

Members of The National Union of Air Transport Employees (NUATE) and the Air Transport Services Senior Staff Association of Nigeria (ATSSSAN) who had planned embark on a strike action, withdrew their decision after consultations earlier today.

The decision reached by the Union on shelving the strike action followed the outcome of a meeting convened in Abuja by heads of both unions with the Honorable Minister of Labor and Productivity, Chief Emeka Wogu and the management of National Airspace Management Agency(NAMA).

The union leaders presented issues which they claimed necessitated the intended strike action, however the Federal Ministry of Labor and Productivity maintained that they had not been properly notified by the unions.

Resolutions were reached and jointly signed by the national presidents of both unions and Directors of NAMA, NATCA and FAAN as well as the Federal Ministry of Aviation and the Federal Ministry of Labor and Productivity.
