Aviation Workers Goes On Nationwide Strike

Aviation Workers are currently protesting across the country die to alleged obnoxious legislation.

According to the President if the National Union of Air Transport Employees (NUATE) Ben Nnabue, the protest is taking place simultaneously in all airports across the country.

He said,

“Sometime last year, we went to the national assembly to amend the act establishing the agencies, so that it would be more progressive. There was one obnoxious clause that talked about trade unions not going on strike. We were shocked that before they sent it to the president for assent, those clauses were maliciously inserted. So we have to fight for them to remove it. That’s the whole idea. It is a peaceful demonstration. It is after now and they didn’t hear us or didn’t look at our demands, then we get to the level of grounding the operations of airports,” he said. We have given government 14-days ultimatum to look at our demands, after which we now do what is called strike.”
