National Union of Air Transport Employees threatens to disrupt Aero contractors’ operations on Monday

The National Union of Air Transport Employees has threatened to disrupt Aero contractors’ operations by Monday if the airline refuses to recall over 700 workers sacked recently.

The General Secretary, NUATE, Mr Olayinka Abioye, issued the warning today that the sack of the workers as an exercise in bad faith to the industry and the country in general.

Abioye accused Asset Management Corporation of Nigeria of not acting in the best interest of Aero contractors and its workers since the takeover in 2013.

He assured that NUATE, alongside other aviation unions, would ensure that the affected workers were paid their entitlements and benefits before the airline could dismiss them.

The airline, which is under the management of Amcon, had sacked more than 700 workers, representing 60 percent of its workforce.
