Workers in aviation sector plan to shut down Kaduna airport
There are plans by workers in the aviation sector to shut down flight operations at the Kaduna State Airport.
The unions, namely the National Union of Air Transport Employees, Association of Nigeria Aviation Professionals and National Association of Aircraft Pilots and Engineers made this known in a statement on Saturday.
The NUATE General Secretary, Ocheme Aba, ANAP General Secretary, Rasaq Saidu and NAAPE General Secretary, Umoh Ofonime, in a statement which they jointly signed, said the development follows an agreement jointly reached by the various aviation unions in the country.
According to the statement, the strike action is in accordance with the declaration by the Nigeria Labour Congress, Kaduna State Chapter, to embark on the action in protest of anti-labour practices perpetrated against civil servants by the Nasir El-Rufai-led administration.
This decision to strike by the aviation workers, it was gathered, might bring untold hardship and pains on the travelling public as the Kaduna Airport is currently the vital connecting gateway for Northern businessmen and the elites who avoid plying the Abuja-Kaduna road which has become a kidnappers’ den.
