Airport workers in the country have been directed to embark on a two-day nationwide warning strike on September 5 and 6, 2023, in solidarity with the Nigeria Labour Congress (NLC).
The National Union of Air Transport Employees (NUATE), the Association of Nigeria Aviation Professionals (ANAP) as well and the National Association of Aircraft Pilots & Engineers, disclosed this in a circular dated September 4th, 2023, and addressed to all aviation workers.
The circular was signed by both NUATE and ANAP secretaries-general, Ocheme Aba and Abdul Rasaq Saidu.
It read, “As you are all aware, the Nigeria Labour Congress (NLC) has directed a 2-day nationwide warning strike due to the present regime of subsidy removal which has wrecked untold hardship on workers and the common people generally.
“Accordingly as affiliates of NLC, all state councils and branches of the above-named trade unions are hereby directed to fully join respective state councils of the Nigeria Labour Congress NLC in all states on September 5 & 6, 2023 for the strike action.
“Aviation workers are hereby directed to stay at home during these periods. All must comply,” the union ordered.
