Aviation workers in Nigeria have suspended a nationwide industrial action billed to commence on February 8, 2022.
Minister of Labour and Employment, Senator Chris Ngige, said this while briefing newsmen at the end of a conciliation meeting in the early hours of Tuesday in Abuja.
Ngige said the two demands of the unions were non-implementation of the minimum wage consequential adjustment in the Aviation Parastatals since 2019 and the non-approval/release of the reviewed conditions of service in the parastatals.
He disclosed that a Memorandum of Settlement (MOS) was reached between the aviation workers and the Federal Ministry of Aviation.
Aviation workers under the aegis of the National Union of Air Transport Employees (NUATE) and Association of Nigeria Aviation Professionals (ANAP), had threatened to withdraw their services by February 8, over poor welfare and unimplemented agreements with the government.
