The National Union of Air Transport Employees, NUATE, is set to ground the nation’s aviation sector as it has directed all aviation workers to withdraw all services and join other Nigerians and stakeholders to proceed on the nation wide strike called by the Nigeria Labour Congress, NLC on the 6 November, 2018.

In a statement, the National President of NUATE, comrade Ben Nnabue says this was in compliance to the NLC and other partners in the organized labour to embark on a Nationwide strike “due to the inability of the Federal Government to agree on the New National Minimum Wage”.

According to him, “all flights operating in/out of Nigeria Airports shall be affected by this industrial action. We appeal to your good sense and understanding in this regard”.

NUATE President stressed that ” injustice anywhere was a threat to justice everywhere”.

All heads of aviation agencies are said to have been intimated through letters of the Union’s intention to embark on the impending strike and withdrawal of services of it members from all Airports in the country.

Yesterday, the Federal Government had gone to court to stop the organized labour from embarking on the proposal which was granted by the court, however, the NLC and it’s partners had said no court can stop them from embarking on the Nationwide shut down as government was being adamant in fulfilling the earlier agreement of N30,000 as the New Minimum Wage.
