Unions Threaten to Distrupt Operations At MMA2



Aviation labour unions, the Air Transport Services Senior Staff Association of Nigeria (ATSSSAN) and the National Union of Air Transport Employees (NUATE), have threatened to disrupt operations at the nation’s busiest domestic terminal, the Murtala Muhammed Airport Terminal Two (MMA2), Lagos following the termination of services of some members of staff of Bi-Courtney Aviation Services Limited (BASL).

The unions gave the company one week ultimatum, which expires Monday, to recall the 20 workers, alleging that they were sacked because of the major roles they played in the agitation for better welfare for the workers of the organisation under the unions.

Bi-Courtney Aviation Services Limited (BASL), operators of MMA2, in its reaction to the plan to close its operations described the threats as act of lawlessness by the unions.

A statement by the company Sunday said, “The attention of Bi-Courtney Aviation Services Limited (BASL), operators of the Murtala Muhammed Airport Terminal Two (MMA2) has been drawn to the activities of two of the unions in the aviation industry namely, the Air Transport Services Senior Staff Association of Nigeria (ATSSSAN) and the National Union of Air Transport Employees (NUATE), which have threatened to disrupt operations of our terminal.

BASL said it was shocked by the threats of the unions “to further display acts of lawlessness against our organisation.”
