Aviation unions shut down operations at Murtala Muhammed Airport over sack of 20 employees

The unions in the aviation sector have shut down operations at the Murtala Muhammed Airport 2 in Lagos over alleged sack of 20 employees who indicated interest to unionize.

The unions are; The National Union of Air Transport Employees, Air Transport Services Senior Staff Association of Nigeria and the National Association of Aircraft Pilots and Engineers.

The unions said they were compelled to carry out the action following the refusal of the Bi-Courtney Aviation Services Limited -BASL management to cooperate with the interventions of the Nigerian Civil Aviation Authority and airport security agencies.

The unions said all services to MMA2 will be withdrawn unless the management fully reinstate all the affected workers without loss of pay or seniority and advised the management to recognise the unions and allow the unhindered processes of unionisation in BASL in compliance with extant labour laws.
