The National Union of Air Transport Employees (NUATE) has issued a 14-day ultimatum to the management of Skyway Aviation Handling Company (SAHCOL) to commence the review of staff conditions of service.
In a letter addressed to the management of SAHCOL and signed by the general secretary of NUATE, Mr. Olayinka Abioye, the association threatened that should the company fail to comply within the given time, the workers would embark on a nationwide strike.
The letter, with the reference number NUATE.GS/MD.SAHCOL/ENP/004-2016, dated September 19, 2016, reads: “Given the mandate of the national executive council (NEC) at a meeting in Ilorin and matters arising there from, notice is hereby given your management that a 14-day ultimatum be given you as a window to convoke a meeting towards the commencement of the review of staff conditions of service.
“You may recall that the said documents expired since June 2014 and all concerted efforts of the unions formally and informally to bring management to the table has been frustrated severally by your management.”
“By this letter therefore and unless you commence discussions with our union, there shall be nationwide strike action in all SAHCOL formations across Nigeria.”
