Sacked workers threaten to shutdown Aero Contractors operations


The National Union of Air Transport Employees has threatened to disrupt Aero Contractors’ operations by Monday if the airline refuses to recall over 700 workers sacked recently.

The General Secretary, NUATE, Mr Olayinka Abioye, who issued the warning on Friday described the sack of the workers as an exercise in “bad faith” to the industry and the country in general.


“By Monday, the whole world will know what is really happening in Aero Contractors. We are going to shut down the operations of the airline.

“There is no place in the world where people will work for 20 to 25 years and you will disengage them and ask them to go home empty-handed.

“This has never happened before, so it will not happen in Aero Contractors,” he said.

Abioye accused Asset Management Corporation of Nigeria of not acting in the best interest of Aero contractors and its workers since the takeover in 2013.
