The aviation unions comprising the National Union of Air Transport Union (NUATE) , Air Transport Senior Staff Association of Nigeria (ATSSSAN), Association of Nigeria Aviation Professionals (ANAP) and Amalgamated Union of Public Corporations Civil Service Technical and Recreational Services Employees (AUPCTRE) have given the management of Nigerian Airspace Management Agency (NAMA) 48 hours to accede to its demands or risk industrial action.
Failure to address the demands, the unions said, “The unions cannot guarantee industrial harmony upon expiration of the stated deadline of February 28, 2021”.
‘In view of the above, we are therefore putting the secretariats on alert to mobilize necessary action for a 48 hour warning strike stating March 1, 2021”.
The groups in a letter written to the Managing Director of NAMA, Capt. Fola Akinkuotu, dated February 23, 2021, entitled, “Invitation to Management /Union Meeting on Congress Resolution of January 25th, 2021” mandated the management to fulfill workers’ condition of service, payment of year 2020 productivity allowance, immediate commencement of payment of accrued pensions, National Health Insurance Scheme (NHIS), furniture grant and outstanding staff claims.
The letter jointly signed by chairmen of ATSSSAN, Dada Oluwole, NUATE, PJA Igene, AUPCTRE, Tukur S.A, ANAP, Atatakpa Evuarhehe among others expressed sadness that the level of compliance does not show the needed commitment from the NAMA management, which they said necessitated for another joint meeting with the National Executives, Branch Executive and Presidents of professional association.
The unions also took a resolution that the joint meeting mandated all invitees to the management/union meeting to decline attendance of the meeting as a congress had already been held, noting that the mandate stands.
They equally mandated the national secretariat to comply with the resolution of the congress held on January 25th, 2021Google+
