Sequel to a two-day warning strike by aviation workers, flight operations at the Nnamdi Azikwe International Airport, Abuja have been disrupted.
The strike, which commenced in the early hours of Monday, has led to the closure of the offices operated by the aviation agencies.
The National Union of Air Transport Employees (NUATE), Association of Nigeria Aviation Professionals as well as the Amalgamated Union of Public Corporation Civil Service Technical and Recreational Services Employees on Friday issued a special bulletin to staff of aviation agencies nationwide to intimate them of a warning strike.
According to the leadership of NUATE, all operations at the Nigerian Airspace Management Agency (NAMA), Nigerian Meteorological Agency (NiMet), the Nigerian Civil Aviation Authority (NCAA) and the Nigerian College of Aviation Technology (NCAT) would be grounded.
The union also said the strike will affect air traffic controllers, safety inspectors and other key safety personnel within the industry.
In compliance with the directive issued, staff of the agencies were prevented from entering their offices.
