Aviation union shelves planned strike as NCAA intervenes

Aviation workers under the umbrella of the National Union of Air Transport Employees (NUATE) have suspended their plans to embark on strike by August 16.

Mr Ocheme Oba, General Secretary, NUATE, confirmed the development in a statement issued on Wednesday in Lagos.

NUATE had, in a circular issued on August 15, said aviation security workers would embark on an indefinite nationwide strike over poor wages.


The circular revealed that the workers are usually paid a meagre N30,000 monthly, noting that the wage was insufficient, thereby bringing untold hardship to the workers.

Oba disclosed that the union had sent a letter to the Nigeria Civil Aviation Authority, NCAA, informing it of the union’s decision to embark on industrial action.

He said that after receipt of the letter, the authority intervened in the matter and requested a week to deliberate on the workers’ demands.

The Union’s scribe said the NCAA had promised to organise a meeting between the union, private security firms and the airlines.
