Aviation Workers shelve Planned Strike, sign agreement with Federal Government.
Written by News Room on February 8, 2022
Aviation industry’s Associations/Unions have suspended a nationwide industrial action billed to commence February 8.
Minister of Labour and Employment, Senator Chris Ngige, said this while briefing newsmen at the end of a conciliation meeting in the early hours of Tuesday in Abuja.
Ngige said the two demands of the unions were non-implementation of the minimum wage consequential adjustment in the Aviation Parastatals since 2019 and the non-approval/release of the reviewed conditions of service in the parastatals.
Ngige said some resolutions were reached after exhaustive deliberations on the issues which the parties agreed as germane.
It will be recalled that the aviation workers under the aegis of the National Union of Air Transport Employees (NUATE) and Association of Nigeria Aviation Professionals (ANAP), had threatened to withdraw their services by Feb. 8, over poor welfare and unimplemented agreements with the government.
