Arik Air resumes operations

21 December 2016, 10:37

Lagos - Aviation unions have called of their industrial action against Arik Air following an intervention by the Nigerian Civil Aviation Authority (NCAA).

This was made known in a communique signed by the leadership of the unions, Arik Air management and a representative of the NCAA.

The communique was signed by Olayinka Abioye, General Secretary, National Union of Air Transport Employees (NUATE) and Frances Akinjole, General Secretary, Air Transport Senior Staff Services Association of Nigeria (ATSSSAN).

It was also signed by the General Secretary of the National Association of Aircraft Pilots and Engineers (NAAPE), Aba Ocheme, Deputy Managing Director, Arik Air, Capt. Ado Sanusi and Capt. Sidi Abdullahi of the NCAA.

The unions had embarked on the joint strike following the airline’s failure to pay seven months salary arrears and other alleged anti-labour practices.

They had earlier on Tuesday shut down Arik Air’s flight operations at both the local and international wings of the Murtala Muhammed Airport, Lagos and also barricaded the airline’s corporate headquarters within the airport premises

However, the communique said the unions agreed to call off the strike after exhaustive deliberations with the management of Arik Air and the NCAA.

It said that Arik Air, at the meeting, agreed to pay the outstanding October salaries on or before December 23, while that of November would be paid on or before December 31.
