NLC set to picket non- unionised airlines

The president of Nigerian Labour Congress (NLC), Comrade Omar Abdulwaheed has hinted that workers union in the Aviation industry may be forced to pickets domestic airlines that that disallowed their workers from joining union of their choice.

He said the attitude of the airlines was tantamount to depriving the workers their fundamental right of freedom of association as enshrined in the the country's constitution and no efforts would be spared to ensure that workers are allowed to free themselves from the shackles of sale drivers in the aviation sector.

He gave the warning while speaking at the 9th Quadrennial Delegates Conference of the National Union of Air Transport Employees (NUATE) currently holding at the Transcorp Hilton Hotels, Abuja.

He said it was disgusting that out of all domestic airlines in the country, on Aero Contractors allowed its workforce to freely join the union/association of their choice as guaranteed by the constitution and even the revised Trade Union Act.

Comrade Omar it was an affront and utter disregard to refused to abide by the country's laws, adding:" if foreign airlines such as British Airways, Lufthansa, KLM and others that are flying into the country can respect our laws, shocking that our own-Nigerian airlines that are infringing on workers freedom of association".

NLC President who vowed that the Labour was ready to put an end to this, hinted that picketing of the airlines would be embarked upon in no distant future said :" We shall start with the big one among them after which we will move to others".

He told the workers delegate present of the total support of NLC in the fight against acts by airlines or mange net of agencies in aviation to trample on workers inalienable rights.

He commended NUATE executive their achievements so far and urged the leaders and their members (workers) not to allow any management of agencies infiltrate their ranks. "

when government was appointing Ministers, managing directors of its agencies the unions did not interfere directly or indirectly. Why then will you allow chief executives in industry chose our leaders for us. We are the ones that know who should be our leaders without external influence"
