Strike: Aviation Workers Shun FG's Plea, Threaten To Shut Down Airports

Strike: Aviation Workers Shun FG's Plea, Threaten To Shut Do

Striking workers in the aviation sector have ignored pleas from the federal government as they threaten to shut down the nation's airports over failure to meet their demands.

The Ministry of Aviation had pleaded with the aggrieved workers to suspend the industrial action on Monday after many passengers were left stranded on the first day of the strike.

A meeting was called by the Director-General, Civil Aviation, Capt. Musa Nuhu, who tried to prevail on the unions to halt their two-day warning strike.

Apparently, the convergence did not yield the desired result as disclosed by the General Secretary Amalgamated Union of Public Corporations, Civil Service Technical and Recreational Services Employees, Sikiru Waheed.

He shared that the second day of the warning strike will be more effective and that the first day was a warning to citizens and the government that they are serious about their demands being met.

“Day two of the strike would be more effective than what you are seeing here now because we only used today as a warning to people that are travelling.

“So, people who need to travel tomorrow should not book a flight for tomorrow because it is going to be a total shutdown. It is not going to be like today. By 5:00 am we will be here to shut down everywhere.

“We are appealing to all those that want to travel that they should shelve their journey for tomorrow because it may be disrupted. It is a warning for everyone in the public”, he stated.
