The National Union of Air Transport Employees (NUATE) on Wednesday directed staff in the aviation security and logistics sub-sector to suspend their planned strike for seven days.
NUATE) had in a circular signed by its General Secretary, Ocheme Aba, and addressed to the Director-General of the Nigerian Civil Aviation Authority (NCAA) on Tuesday ordered the workers to proceed on strike over poor wages.
The union decried the N30,000 monthly salaries pay the workers as grossly inadequate.
In the latest circular, NUATE said the suspension of the strike followed a request by the NCAA director-general.
The circular read: “Accordingly, the withdrawal of services that was earlier directed to commence today has been suspended for one week, effective today.
“We note the high level of mobilisation by the branches and our State Councils and commend the high state of solidarity among our members. Thank you all. We shall remain on standby, ready for any eventuality.”
