The Nigerian Civil Aviation Authority (NCAA) is to meet with trade unions in the aviation sector on October 21 to resolve the lingering dispute over staff promotion.

Mr. Olayinka Abioye, the Assistant General Secretary, National Union of Air Transport Employees (NUATE), disclosed this in Lagos on Thursday in an interview with the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN).

NAN reports that NUATE and the National Association of Aircraft Pilots and Engineers (NAAPE) had threatened to go on strike if NCAA refused to promote some of their members.

They had accused the NCAA management of being nonchalant to the promotion of their members, which the unions said, had been due since January 2015.

The NCAA, through its spokesperson, Mr. Sam Adurogboye, had insisted that the workers would only be promoted after passing a written examination in line with the directive of the Federal Government.

However, Abioye told NAN that the NCAA had invited the union leaders for a meeting on October 21 to find an amicable solution to the dispute.

“That notwithstanding, we also have information that the management has already started issuing out letters for promotion interviews.

“Unfortunately, what is contained in the letter is still a subject of controversy because the unanimous decision of the workers is that the terms and conditions of service of the NCAA must be followed.”

According to him, the requirement for promotion involves an interface with the management and those to be interviewed.

Abioye said that the unions would not accede to any other procedure in the interest of its members. (NAN)
