The National Union of Air Transport Employees (NUATE) on Wednesday threatened to ground the operations of Caverton Helicopters over alleged lack of due process in the sacking of 50 Nigerian workers in the company.

The union gave the warning in a letter addressed to the airline's Chief Executive Officer.

The letter was signed by the union's General-Secretary, Mr Olayinka Abioye and made available to aviation correspondents in Ikeja.

The letter said that Abioye accused the airline’s management of sacking the workers without following due process.

It described the company's action as illegal.

The letter said that the management of the company erred in deducting workers’ salaries without consideration for rules, logic and applicable standards.

The letter said that the union queried the non-uniformity in deductions of workers’ salaries, appealing to the management to address the irregularities on or before the end of November.

“All deductions made from staff since September without recourse to extant financial regulations of the Federal Republic of Nigeria must be reinstated to the workers.”

The letter stressed that the union would not be held responsible for the consequences that might arise over the failure of the management to rectify the shortcomings. (NAN)
