Aviation Unions Shun ULC Strike

Published

on


Aviation unions affiliated to United Labour Congress (ULC), on Monday, shunned directives to shut down the Nigerian airspace as the ULC begin a nationwide strike.

The unions are the Association of Nigerian Aviation Professionals (ANAP), Aeronautical Information Services Association of Nigeria (AISAN) and the National Association of Air Traffic Engineers (NAAE).

The News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) reports that the unions had earlier at a meeting with the management of the Nigerian Airspace Management Agency (NAMA) dissociated themselves from the strike.

NAN aviation correspondents, who monitored the situation at both the international and domestic wings of the Murtala Muhammed International Airport, Lagos, observed normal flight operations by airlines.

As at 9.30am, over 20 local and international flights had lifted and landed at the airport signifying that the unions had not joined the strike.

NAN reports that the ULC issued the strike notice following government failure to recognise the body as a labour federation despite allegedly fulfilling all conditions stipulated by law.

According to it, the failure of government to recognise the group violates the Constitution of Nigeria which guarantees freedom of association, and the Trade Union Act.

It said that government had thus excluded Congress, which has over 20 registered trade unions, from its intended discussion with labour on the issue of national minimum wage. (NAN)
