Aviation workers have shelved their planned industrial action after reaching an agreement with the Federal Government.
As planned, the strike was to begin on Tuesday but the workers made a u-turn on their plan after a Memorandum of Settlement was reached by them and the Federal Ministry of Aviation in the early hours of Tuesday.
Both the workers and federal government signed the agreement at the end of the meeting which was held at the Federal Ministry of Labour and Employment.
In the meeting, the non-implementation of the Minimum Wage consequential adjustment in the aviation parastatals since 2019 and the non-approval/release of the reviewed conditions of service in the parastatals were also discussed.
At the meeting, the union leaders, the Minister of Aviation and the Minister of Labour, it was resolved that by March 31, the Ministry of Aviation must approve, release and implement the reviewed CoS for all the staff in the agencies under the aviation ministry.
The meeting which was presided over by the Minister of Labour and Employment, Senator Chris Ngige,
