Strike: Airlines resume operations at Lagos airport

Aviation unions have opened barricaded airport terminals, following the suspension of an indefinite strike by the Nigerian Labour Congress and Trade Union Congress.

The General Secretary, Air Traffic Services Senior Staff Association of Nigeria (ATSSSAN), Mr Francis Akinjole, said that the strike was ‘relaxed’ for a week to enable the unions to continue talks with the Federal Government on a new minimum wage.

Akinjole said that all blocked access points at the domestic airport terminals I (General Aviation Terminal) and II (Murtala Muhammed Airport II, Lagos) and others had been opened.

The News Agency of Nigeria reports that activities at the domestic wing are in full swing.

Passengers were seen boarding Value Jet, Ibom Air, Arik Air and United Nigeria Airline at Murtala Mohammed Airport II managed by Bi-Courtney Aviation Services Ltd.

It has been reported that the NLC and TUC on Tuesday suspended the indefinite strike for a week to enable continued negotiations with the Federal Government on a new minimum wage.

The unions embarked on the strike on Monday following the inconclusiveness of negotiations on a new minimum wage
