Aviation unions suspend industrial action against Caverton Helicopters

25 November 2016, 18:46

Abuja - Aviation trade unions have suspended their industrial action against Caverton Helicopters over alleged anti-labour practices.

Olayinka Abioye, General Secretary, the National Union of Air Transport Employees, confirmed the development in an interview with the News Agency of Nigeria on Friday in Lagos.

Abioye said the unions had suspended the action following an invitation by the airline’s management to them to come for a meeting.

He said: “Now we are preparing for a meeting with the management and we are looking forward to an amicable resolution of the issues on ground.

“Our main demand is the conclusion of the ongoing discussion on salary increment and conditions of service.

“When we complete that, we will now go to the next one which is the management’s plan to disengage certain numbers of staff.

“We are hoping that we will be able to apply the conditions of service which we would have signed as the benchmark to determine the conditions on which those affected are to go, if they have to go.”

NAN reports that the NUATE and the Air Transport Services Senior Staff Association of Nigeria had on Thursday picketed the airline’s premises at the Murtala Muhammed International Airport, Lagos.
