The management of Federal Airports Authority of Nigeria (FAAN) and the workers have agreed that May salary will be paid in full.
At a meeting with the workers’ unions on Thursday, the management rescinded the decision to slash May salary by half, though didn’t guarantee future payment if the fortunes of the industry did not improve.
The Guardian had reported that the management and the workers were at loggerheads over a 50 per cent pay cut.
The pay cut, which was disclosed in a memo to the workers, caused displeasure among the over 12,000 employees who protested against management’s unilateral decision.
FAAN got a 24-hour ultimatum from the workers to convene an emergency meeting with their representatives to discuss the memo sent out on management’s inability to pay the full salary of May.
But following the meeting held late Thursday, the unions in a joint statement disclosed that all airport workers would receive full payment of their salaries this month.
The statement signed by the Association of Nigerian Aviation Professional (ANAP), National Union of Air Transport Employees (NUATE), Air Transport Services Senior Staff Association of Nigeria (ATSSSAN) and National Union of Pensioners (NUP) added, “Full payment of May salary across all levels will be paid, while subsequent months will be subject to improvement in revenue generation.” The Guardian
