Aviation employees suspend proposed strike for one week

THE intended strike by Aviation Security (AVSEC) has been put on hold for a week at the request of the National Union of Air Transport Employees (NUATE).

The union in a circular yesterday had instructed the aviation security (AVSEC) and logistics sub-sector to begin an immediate strike over their N30,000 monthly wage today, August 16, 2023.

However, following the involvement of the Director General of the Nigerian Civil Aviation Authority (NCAA), it instructed the workers to cease the strike in another circular today.

The union said they have considered the request of the Director General and decided to grant a period of one week “to allow his effort to bear fruit.”

“Accordingly, the withdrawal of services that was earlier directed to commence today has been suspended for one week, effective today.

“We note the high level of mobilisation by the branches and our State Councils and commend the high state of solidarity among our members. Thank you all. We shall remain on standby, ready for any eventuality,” the union’s statement partly read.
