AIR Transport Services Senior Staff Association of Nigeria (ATSSSAN) is spoiling for war over the redundancy letters issued by Aero Contractors to its workers over the week as the union has said it is not aware of such letters and has advised staff of Aero not to collect such letters.

President of ATSSSAN, Comrade Ahmadu Ilitrus who reacted to the Aero statement swiftly said he was not aware of the purported redundancy notice to workers and described the move as unacceptable to them as meeting to that effect has been scheduled for Friday.

Ilitrus said, “We are not against redundancy but what we are saying is that before you sack them, there must be money to pay them and I know Aero does not have the money to pay them”

“They went ahead to hold meetings with our branch members but we have told then that the matter has gone beyond the branch”

He said the process ought to have taken place as far back as October last year adding that there was a meeting last month to review the progress made but the Aero management pleaded for time to work things out in order to commence the process.

Ilitrus cautioned management of Aero Contractors not to give room for industrial unrest warning that money  all affected workers must be ready at the point of the collection of their letters.
