If there is anything, the Association of Nigeria Aviation Professionals (ANAP) wants the Federal Government to do, it is to implement the new minimum wage, pay the consequential adjustments and approve the Condition of Services, Cos for workers of aviation agencies.
The union stressed that, workers welfare should be prioritized for enhanced productivity.
This is just as ANAP also condemned the appointment of some non-professionals as Directors in some of the agencies.
Comrade Abdulrasaq Saidu General Secretary ANAP, who stated this while exchanging views with journalists in his office on the essence of the May Day celebration, lamented that the appointments of most of the Directors in system needed to be reviewed while qualified professionals are allowed to do the job.
Comrade Saidu noted that though the chief executives are professionals, unfortunately, the non-professionals who are directors are frustrating them because of poor knowledge of the job, adding that, most of their duties are transferred to their subordinates to handle.
He traced the origin of the appointment of these non-professionals to the absence of the Governing Boards of Directors of agencies, stressing that, this has affected the conditions of service of the workers for over seven years.
The ANAP scribe noted that, agencies workers are not happy, agitated and frustrated as a result of the neglect, adding that, the Unions are doing their best to ensure industrial harmony.
“But the aviation ministry remained a clog in the wheel of progress by neglecting workers welfare and hijacking the workers functions concerning the condition of Service”.
He commended workers in the aviation sector for their resilient and urged them not to relent in the struggle.
