Passengers stranded as unions disrupt flight operations at Lagos airport

The Air Transport Services Senior Staff Association of Nigeria (ATSSSAN) has called off the industrial action after the intervention by the Ministry of Labour and Employment, the Nigerian Civil Aviation Authority (NCAA), the Federal Airports Authority (FAAN), the Nigerian Airspace Management Agency (NAMA) and other airport security agencies at a meeting in Lagos.

 But BASL said, “A resolution was reached on the same day of the strike action, after a stakeholders’ meeting mediated by the Federal Ministry of Labour and Employment.

 “The stakeholders’ meeting concluded that the staff should be recalled on the clear instruction that they should not report to work.

 “The issue of appropriate severance packages will be mediated between the Federal Ministry of Labour and Employment, the unions and BASL. The alleged outstanding salary, which is for October 2022, due at the end of October 2022 and thus not a delayed salary, should be paid and has since been paid by BASL.” It said.
