According to reports, there will be no flight operations in all airports across the country as all terminals will be shut.
It was gathered that airports across the country are to be shut down on Monday, October 26, as the two leading unions in the sector on Thursday, October 22, threatened to shut down Nigerian Civil Aviation Authority, NCAA by midnight on Sunday.
The unions, National Union of Air Transport Employees, NUATE, and National Association of Aircraft Pilots and Engineers, NAAPE, in a letter dated 21st October, 2015 to their members accused NCAA of not adhering to the condition of service with respect to promotion of workers and other welfare issues.
The letter jointly signed by Secretary General, NUATE and Secretary General NAAPE, Comrades Olayinka Abioye and Aba Ocheme threatened to shut down the agency from midnight Sunday till further notice.
The unions insisted that the withdrawal of service by the workers became expedient in order to safeguard the integrity of NCAA’s condition of service.
The unions stated that the action of the Director- General of NCAA, Capt. Muhtar Usman breached section 3.4 of condition of service, adding that all efforts to discuss with the management had been futile.
The letter added: “By the copy of this notice, the general public is hereby informed of this development and the implications that all safety regulations activities of the NCAA will be unavailable from that time and date. The above notice will remain in force until otherwise directed by the secretariat of our unions.”
