NLC Gives Air Peace, Turkish Air, Bristow Two Weeks Ultimatum To Reinstate Sacked Workers

 

Nigeria Labour Congress (NLC) has rejected the recent sack of pilots by Air Peace, Bristow Helicopters and National Union of Air Transport employees working with Turkish Airline

 

In a press statement signed by the NLC President, Ayuba Wabba, on Friday, he described the sacking of Air TurkishAir Peace and Bristow Helicopters workers as “highly insensitive, callous, and unjust.”

He stated that workers should not be penalised for participating in union activities, adding;

The unilateral sack of executive members of the National Union of Air Transport Employees working with Turkish Airline is particularly distressing. These workers were sacked for fighting for the rights of Nigerian workers in Turkish Air.

This is very reprehensible. We wish to remind Turkish Air that unionized workers cannot be punished or sacked for participating in trade union activities. This action is aimed at frustrating unionization in Turkish Air and to enslave Nigerians working with Turkish Air.

While stressing that labour would not stop advocating for the dismissed workers, Wabba asked the management of Turkish Air, Air Peace and Bristow Helicopters to reinstate all redundant workers within two weeks.

NLC president added;

We call on the management of Turkish Air, Air Peace and Bristow Helicopters to reinstate all the sacked workers withing two weeks. As agreed between labour and Employees’ Association, social dialogue should be used to resolve industrial concerns instead of the current resort to unilateralism.

He stressed;

We will not hesitate to mobilize the weight of the entire Nigerian workforce to the premises of Turkish Air, Air Peace and Bristow Helicopters if our demands are not met.
