Aero Airline directs dismissed workers to submit CVs

03 April 2013, 09:16

Ikeja  - The management of Aero Contractors Airline on Tuesday directed  its recently dismissed 1 000 staff members to submit their curriculum vitae for assessment and possible re-absoption.

This is contained in a letter signed by the Airline's Managing Director, Obaro Ibru, to the Air Transport Senior Staff Services Association of Nigeria (ATSSSAN) in Ikeja.

The letter stated that the re-assessment became necessary as part of the resolutions reached at a meeting convened by the Senate Committee on Aviation on March 28 in Abuja.

The letter was also copied to the Chairman, Senate Committee, Minister of Aviation, State Controller, Ministry of Labour and the Managing Director of the Assets Management Company of Nigeria (AMCON).

The letter with reference number FA/MA/HRD/L.0046/13 and dated April 2, was titled  ``'Resolution of the Senate Committee on Aviation: Ongoing Reorganisation Exercise of Aero Contractors’’.

It ordered the affected worker to return their dismissal letters by Tuesday, adding the salaries of the workers would be paid at the appropriate time.

``All the affected staff members have been formally communicated with and also notified that they are to undergo an assessment for a suitable role within the company as applicable.

``The balance of their March 2013 salary payable to them will be credited to their salary accounts, respectively.

``While the assessment is ongoing, the full salaries and benefits applicable to them for the position they occupied prior to the commencement of the reorganisation process has been reinstated and will be paid.

`All individual staff have also been advised to ensure they submit their detailed CVs with correct home addresses and telephone numbers to cv.hour@can.aero on or before close of work on April 2.’’

It will be recalled that the airline commenced skeletal services on March 29 with flights to Port Harcourt, Uyo and Abuja pending the resolution of the strike by the workers.

Joyce Nkemakolam, the  Acting Director-General,  Nigerian Civil Aviation Authority (NCAA), had said that the airline was granted permission to recommence skeletal flights to Uyo, Abuja and Port Harcourt.

He said the agency would only give Aero the full status when it completed its auditing process with the agency.

``They have not met all the conditions but they had recommenced skeletal service.

``We have given the airline the permission to commence skeletal service till they have full staff strength.

``We gave them permission to fly to Uyo, Port Harcourt and Abuja only,’’ Nkemakolam said.
