The protest is to press home their demand for the implementation of the approved salary scale endorsed by National Salary Incomes and Wages Commission.
In a joint statement signed by Comrade Olayinka Abioye, Abdulkareem Motajo and Aba Ocheme, issued at the end of an emergency meeting between the National Union of Air Transport Employees (NUATE )and Air Transport Services Senior Staff Association ATSSSAN and the National Association of Aircraft Pilots and Engineer (NAAPE), on behalf of the workers of the organisation, they urged the public to discountenance information rolled out by the management of the airspace agency that the strike has been suspended.
According to the unions, the meeting convened by the management of NAMA last Friday did not address the issue on ground to the satisfaction of the union’s agitations.
He added that the meeting was expected to continue on Monday to further deliberate on issues at stake after the parties agreed that dialogue was the best way of resolving industrial crisis.
“For the avoidance of doubt, we wish to state categorically that the ultimatum issued against NAMA shall expire 0000 hrs May 2013 and appropriate actions shall commence thereafter. We wish to reassure all our members that no retreat, no surrender, and until all grievances are sorted out, there is no going back on our cause of action”
The Unions said all workers have been put on standby for the implementation of the action.
