Aviation Unions Mull Strike Over 50% TSA Deduction

Archive: Unions embarking on peaceful protest

The Federal Government’s continuous 50% deduction from aviation agencies’ revenue sparks impending strike talks among union leaders.

Next week in Lagos, union generals will convene to strategize against the TSA imposition, ATSSSAN President Ahmadu Illitrus revealed.

ATSSSAN warns of potential industrial action if agencies aren’t withdrawn from the TSA, citing detrimental effects on operations.

President Tinubu’s recent increase to 50% deduction exacerbates concerns, particularly for non-profit aviation agencies like NCAA and NAMA.

Illitrus stresses compliance with ICAO standards, arguing against treating aviation agencies as profit-driven entities.

He highlights agencies’ struggle to access funds for essential operations due to TSA restrictions, urging government intervention.

The unions plan to meet in Lagos to solidify their stance and communicate their grievances to the government.

If no resolution is reached, the unions threaten future protests to safeguard aviation industry interests.
