The workers of some agencies under the Ministry of Aviation have started a two-day warning strike from Monday to Tuesday due to unresolved conditions of service.
The Chairman, FCT National Union of Air Transport Employees, Mr. Dauda Nanbol, said during a protest on Monday that the move was necessary as the notice of strike from the unions was unheeded.
According to him, the agencies involved in the protest are the Nigerian Airspace Management Agency, Nigerian Civil Aviation Authority, Nigerian Meteorological Agency, and Nigerian College of Aviation Technology.
Nanbol said that ongoing efforts by the Federal Ministry of Aviation and National Salaries Income and Wages Commission to resolve the issues did not show any positive sign of achieving results anytime.
He said, “Consequently, our unions have no alternative than to embark on an industrial action to press home our demands for justice and equity.
“Especially considering the long-suffering, patience, and forbearance on the part of our members.
“Accordingly, all workers in NAMA, NCAA, NiMet, and NCAT are hereby directed to embark on a two-day warning strike from Monday to Tuesday.
“Should the warning go unheeded, an indefinite strike shall be called soon after.”
