Aviation security to commence strike Wednesday

The National Union of Air Transport Employees has directed the Aviation Security and Logistics sub-sector to commence an immediate strike across Nigerian airports from tomorrow, Wednesday following poor wages.

The circular, which was signed by the General Secretary, NUATE, Ocheme Aba, lamented that AVSEC who are mostly graduates are paid a paltry sum of N30, 000 monthly.

The union in a circular sent to the Director-General Civil Aviation, Managing Director, Federal Airports Authority of Nigeria, Commissioner of Police, Airports Command, the Airport Commandant, Director, Department of State Services, Murtala Muhammed International Airport, Lagos Command stated that the withdrawal of service was inevitable.

Aba explained that all efforts to negotiate improved wages for their members in the past had failed and wondered why N30, 000 could be sufficient for the personnel in today’s Nigeria.
