NUATE slams 14 days ultimatum on SAHCOL over poor condition of service

NATIONAL Union of Air Transport Employees (NUATE) yesterday issued the management of Skyway Aviation Handling Company Limited, SAHCOL, a 14 day ultimatum over its refusal to review condition of service of staff which the union considers appalling.

The union warned that if the management refused to discuss with it with 14 days, it would ground the ground handling activities nationwide.

A petition addressed to the Managing Director of the ground handling company with the reference number NUATE.GS/MD.SAHCOL/ENP/004-2016, dated September 19, 2016, and signed by its General Secretary, Comrade Olayinka Abioye accused the management of avoiding the issue.

The union also copied the State Controller, Federal Ministry of Labour and Empowerment, National Officer and SAHCOL NUATE members nationwide.

The petition said, “Given the mandate of the National Executive Council, NEC, at a meeting in Ilorin and matters arising therefrom, notice is hereby given your management that a 14-day ultimatum be given your window to convoke a meeting towards the commencement of the review of staff conditions of service.

“You may recall that the said documents expired since June 2014 and all concerted efforts of the unions formally and informally to bring management to the table has been frustrated severally by your management.”

The union warned that unless the management commences discussions immediately with it, there would be a nationwide strike action in all SAHCOL formations across the country’s airports.
