The Federal Government has urged the striking AVIATION WORKERS to resume work, saying the requested adjustment of the minimum wage would be paid soon.
Spokesman for the Ministry of Aviation, Oluseyi Odutayo, had also expressed the ministry’s displeasure at the industrial action embarked on by the workers yesterday.
Oluseyi, who spoke on behalf of the Minister of Aviation, Hadi Sirika, noted that the strike is unnecessary as it will “increase the hardship on citizens, affect flight schedules, lead to economic losses and negatively impact the country’s rating globally.”
Meanwhile, the aviation industry will continue to experience a total shutdown today Tuesday as the Aviation workers keep up with their two-day warning strike, a situation that inevitably left many air passengers stranded.
The unions involved include National Union of Air Transport Employee (NUATE), Air Transport Services Senior Staff Association of Nigeria (ATSSSAN), National Association of Aircraft Pilots and Engineers (NAAPE), and Association of Nigerian Aviation Professionals (ANAP).
