Aviation Workers Suspend Strike Hours After Grounding International Flight At Lagos Airport
Aviation workers suspended their strike hours after grounding international flight operations at the Murtala Muhammed International Airport yesterday.
Workers of the Nigerian Aviation Handling Company, PLC, NAHCO embarked on strike in protest of salary increments and abysmal welfare despite over 100 percent airfare hikes.
In a trending video seen by media, passengers were seen stranded and frustrated at the Lagos Airport.
However, the strike has been suspended by the Air Transport Services Senior Staff Association of Nigeria, ATSSSAN.
The Deputy General Secretary, ATSSSAN, Frances Akinjole, told the media yesterday that NAHCO agreed to commence negotiation on the salary issue with it.
