Air Transport Union Suspends Strike

The Air Transport Services Senior Staff Association of Nigeria (ATSSSAN) has shelved its proposed two-day warning strike to protest the proposed merger of aviation parastatals.

In a communique released at the end of a two-day National Executive Council (NEC) meeting in Ijebu-Ode, Ogun State,  members agreed the proposed strike be suspended due to the information gathered that President Goodluck Jonathan had hearkened to the cries of the aviation workers by shelving the merger.

ATSSSAN explained that it also considered the country’s keeping of global standards, procedures and practices in order to sustain safety and security of the airspace and general operations as another reason for shelving the strike.

In a statement signed by Mr Benjamin Okewu and Mr Tarnongu Captain, the National President and Deputy General Secretary of ATSSSAN respectively,  the union said it was awaiting the final pronouncement of President Jonathan’s discontinuation of the merger of  the three aviation agencies before taking the next line of action.

 The three agencies are the Nigerian Civil Aviation Authority (NCAA), the Nigerian Airspace Management Agency (NAMA) and the Nigerian Meteorological Agency (NIMET).

 The NEC also called the attention of the government to the aviation transformation road map, which created an enabling atmosphere to attract huge investments of over a hundred billion dollars for infrastructure in the industry.
