Aviation unions in the Federal Airports Authority of Nigeria, FAAN, have given the Management of FAAN, 24 hours to call for an urgent meeting with the unions to discuss the memo sent to staff on their inability to pay the full month salary for the month of May.
Failure to do this, the unions say, “We cannot guarantee industrial harmony and the consequences which may arise shall be put onto your door steps.”
The unions in FAAN, the Air Transport Services Senior Staff Association of Nigeria, ATSSSAN and the Association of Nigerian Aviation Professionals, ANAP in a letter addressed to the Managing Director, FAAN today and signed by its Secretaries General, Comrade Abdulrazak Saidu and Comrade Frances Akinjole say the Unions are amazed and disturbed by the FAAN’s management unilateral decision despite the agreement with the unions that before any decision is taken, they will be carried away.
The unions say, “if such affront could be willfully mete out to a component of the staff conditions of service, CoS, without the knowledge of the National unions which is a party to the agreement, it portends a possibility of waking up one day to find the the CoS document clandestinely reviewed.”
Just recently, FAAN in a memo to all the staff dated May19,2020 with
reference:FAAN/HQ/Admin/2020/05 signed by the General Manager, Administration, M.D Musa read:
“This is to notify all staff that due to the dwindling revenue generation amidst COVID19 pandemic, management may not be able to pay full salary to staff as from May 2020.
“However,as soon as the revenue generation improves, the balance will be paid. This measure is to ensure the survival of the organization”.
