Aviation Union Threatens Strike Over MDAs’ Revenue Reduction


Air Transport Services Senior Staff Association of Nigeria (ATSSSAN) has threatened to embark on industrial action if the federal government refuses to exempt aviation agencies from the directive seeking 50 percent deduction from their internally generated revenue.

This was revealed in a communiqué by ATSSSAN’s National Executive Council, after the National Economic Council Meeting in Ibadan, Oyo State.

The NEC meeting was attended by all the 17 affiliates of ATSSSAN with the full complement of their respective branch chairmen, secretaries, and national officers.

ATSSSAN reiterated calls for exempting aviation agencies from the deduction of 50 per cent of their IGR under the Fiscal Responsibility Act.

The Association said the agencies were not established for profit, adding that stifling them of the required funds would jeopardize the effective performance of their safety and security mandates.

It warned that if the federal government insisted on the deduction, they may be forced to direct all aviation workers to down tools until the government reverses itself.
