Flight disruptions: NAHCO assures normalcy will return soon


The Management of the Nigeria Aviation Handling Company, NAHCO says, they are meeting with the unions to resolve the problems that led to flight disruptions this morning.

In a statement, the Group Executive Director, Dr. Olusola Obabori said, the Company is already engaging the Unions and other stakeholders and are positive the situation would be resolved within hours.

The company also acknowledged that some of its clients were being put through a difficult situation by the insistence of some staff to embark on strike action despite a subsisting order of court which restrained them from doing so.

“We regret all the inconveniences,.

“We understand the power of negotiation. The Company which has arguably the best welfare package among the local players in the aviation industry will do all that is absolutely necessary to make its workforce happy even as it delights its customers.”

“This situation would be resolved speedily as it is detrimental to the staff, the Company and its esteemed clients.”

NAHCO’s Explanation

It would be recalled that aviation unions, NUATE and ATSSSAN last week gave a five – day notice of strike to NAHCO management citing slow progress in negotiation for salary review. 

The company which just promoted about 2,000 members of its workforce asked that accelerated negotiation be continued in February to enable the Company stabilize from the financial effect of the recent promotions.

Undaunted, the unions gave the notice of strike prompting the Management of the Company to seek for court intervention to prevent the industrial action while negotiation proceeds in a serene and conducive atmosphere.
