The Nigerian Airspace Management Agency ( NAMA) is set to achieve industrial harmony as its management held an engagement forum with the Joint Aviation Trade Unions.
The unions, according to a source, include National Union of Air Transport Employees (NUATE), Air Transport Services Senior Staff Association of Nigeria (ATSSSAN), National Association of Air Traffic Controllers (NATCA), National Association of Aeronautical Engineers (NAAE) and Aeronautical Information Management Association of Nigeria (AIMA). Also included is the National Aeronautical Communication Association of Nigeria (NACAN), and Amalgamated Union of Public Corporation Civil Service Technical and Recreational Services Employees ( ACUPTRE).
The forum, which held at the corporate headquarters of the airspace agency, provided an opportunity for the airspace agency team, led by Captain Fola Akinkuotu, to engage the leadership of aviation unions on how to forestall industrial unrest and examine issues bordering on non-conclusive conditions of service, poor salaries as a result of non-implementation of the National Wages and Salaries Commission approval for NAMA to operate same salary structure with Federal Airports Authority of Nigeria (FAAN), since 2003.
The meeting, a source said was the first time Akinkuotu met with trade and professional unions after one year in office.
Led by the National President of NUATE, Comrade Mohammed Dauda Safiyanu , the meeting offered a robust window for NAMA management to resolve mistrust that has existed in the agency occasioning lack of trust .
According to Safiyanu , the meeting also provided opportunity for NAMA management to leverage capacity building, foster training and promotion of personnel of the agency to eliminate low work morale.
He said: ” The meeting provided an opportunity to consider ancillary issues especially matters of discipline and the need to promote fair, just and harmonious work environment .
