The Nigerian Airspace Management Agency (NAMA), has sad that the airspace remains open anytime to users, saying its unions are not part of the decision by United Labour Congress of Nigeria (ULC) to shut the airspace by Monday.
A statement by the Agency reads: ‘Following an emergency meeting between NAMA management and representatives of Association of Nigerian Aviation Professionals (ANAP), Aeronautical Information Services Association of Nigeria (AISAN) and the National Association of Air Traffic Engineers (NAAE), where the issue of the proposed strike action by the United Labour Congress of Nigeria (ULC) scheduled to take effect from Monday, September 18, 2017 was discussed, the above unions dissociated themselves from the said strike.
“It is pertinent to inform the general public that while NAAE denied membership of the United Labour Congress, AISAN and ANAP whose members are in NAMA have assured the agency of their decision no to join the strike.
“The agency therefore wishes to reassure the general public of full compliments of air navigation service provision throughout the period of the intended strike if it takes place”.
