Crisis is brewing in the aviation sector over alleged unjust delay of the release of their condition of service for over seven years.

Investigation revealed that the continued delay in the release of aviation agencies condition of service has continued to affect the morale of workers posing grievous harm to the spirit of and law of bargaining.

Investigation revealed that the salaries and wages commission was ready to harmonise the condition of service of all aviation agencies but has been placed on hold as a result of two unions refusal to align with the call to release the long over due condition of service.

The unions it is learnt include, the National Union of Air Transport Employees and the National Association of Aircraft Pilots and Engineers.

A source close to these two unions revealed that there was no need to go ahead with the cost since the matter was before the salaries and wages commission.

But other aviation unions did not align with the position of NUATE and NAAPE, because according to them, the continued delay was unjustified by holding down the progress and well being of thousands of workers in the aviation sector for such an indefinite time on account of a phantom harmonisation exercise

Two unions however, the Air Transport Services Senior Staff Association of Nigeria and Association of Nigeria Aviation Professionals, have demanded that all conditions of service already submitted by aviation agencies which were being unjustifiably delayed since the past seven years should be immediately released in the interest of industrial peace and harmony.

According to investigation, any further delayed will not be accepted and will lead to industrial crisis, adding that their unions were willing to engage other stakeholders on the issue.
