The Nigerian aviation unions have embarked a 2-day warning strike over what they described as unpalatable working conditions, and their entitlements.
Recall that aviation unions had, last Friday, announced that they would embark on a 2-day warning strike.
The unions involved in the demonstration 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 requesting the approval and implementation of the condition of service (CoS), as agreed between them and the Salaries, Incomes and Wages Commission (NSIWC), the office of the head of civil service of the federation, and other agencies.
The unions also complained about the non-implementation of minimum wage consequential adjustments and arrears for the Nigeria Meteorological Agency (NiMet) since 2019 and the planned demolition exercise of all the agency buildings in Lagos by the minister of aviation for an airport city project.
The leadership of the five unions have threatened to embark on an indefinite strike if their requests are not met.
