Hadi Sirika, the Minister of Aviation, has warned aviation unions to refrain from threatening strike action over welfare problems.

Sirika made the remarks during the Air Transport Services Senior Staff Association (ATSSSAN) third’s national delegate conference in Ijebu Ode, Ogun State.

According to the minister, any strike would have an impact on all stakeholders in the industry.

Sirika, who was represented by the Commissioner of the Accident Investigation Bureau (AIB), Akin Olateru, spoke on the impact of COVID-19 on the aviation industry, urging stakeholders to work together to create a sustainable route to a robust and healthy aviation industry, according to Daily Trust.

He also stated that the industry is in recovery mode, and that a strike would be detrimental to that effort.

“We are in a period of recovery, so this is not the time for threats and spate of industrial actions which will only further inhibit the growth the industry so badly needs,” he said.

Ilitrius Ahmadu, President of ATSSSAN, asked aviation employees to engage in a critical discourse rather than just oppose the concept of airport concessions.
